Democrats Hold National Convention Kickoff Event, Unveil Logo

2012 Democratic National Convention Committee(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Depending on how things go over the next year, Tuesday might have been the high point for the organizers of the Democratic National Convention.

The Democrats will hold their convention in Charlotte, N.C., from Sept. 3-6, 2012 where they'll presumably re-nominate President Obama for another term.  On Tuesday, organizers held a kickoff event to unveil the convention logo.

The logo is a variation of the "O" used in the president's 2008 campaign. Democrats are hoping it will bring the White House good luck because all the polls show the president will need it if the economy doesn't turn around quickly.

Still, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, was upbeat at the event in Charlotte, explaining, "This convention is about Americans coming together to commit ourselves and our country to a path that creates more opportunity."

Democrats picked the city because Obama captured North Carolina's 15 eletoral votes in 2008, a state he desperately needs in his win column if he's to get reelected.
