LDS Dems Gather in Charlotte

September 5, 2012

Dear Democrats

Holy smokes, gosh golly, we’re national!  Yesterday something happened.  A moment that will change history and redefine what it means to be a Mormon AND a Democrat.  We’re national and we did it in a big way – CNN, New York TimesNational Journal, Daily Beast, Time, NBC, New York Magazine, The LA Times , and a good sprinking of international press!Senator Harry Reid joined us for the first national meeting of the LDS Democrats Caucus.  We had hundreds of Democrats from Utah, North Carolina, and people who drove for hours from all over the East Coast to be there with us.  The room was packed!We’ll have more coverage after the convention wraps, but the game changed in Charlotte yesterday afternoon, for Utah Democrats and for the Democratic Party nationally.  Here’s just a small portion of the immense, and positive, coverage that the LDS Dems received yesterday:Mormon Democrats gather for first-ever national meeting in Charlotte during DNC (NBC)Mormons for Obama!
