Minnesota lawmakers want Republicans to get drunk. Well, not exactly, but they are considering a law that would keep bars serving alcohol until 4 am and liquor stores open on Sundays for the 11 days surrounding the Republican National Convention this summer. Last call is currently 2 am.
Establishments located within a 11 mile radius of the convention center would feel the alcohol love. Either Minnesota politicians are afraid a dry convention wouldn't be any fun, or they're trying to find a way to help the businesses rake in a few more dollars.
The Republican convention will be held at St. Paul from September 1st through 4th, and about 35,000 visitors are expected to attend. The Democrats will be gathering in Denver in late August.
Which convention would you rather attend?
