SHARE Sweet scoop: Dem planners have contingency plans for contested convention.

WASHINGTON–Democratic National Convention planners in Denver are making sure the presidential nominee host hotel has enough rooms for both a Clinton and Obama contingent if the nomination battle goes to the convention.

The headquarters hotel–the Hyatt Regency at the Convention Center–will also house the Democratic nominee–and if both Clinton and Obama and their staffs and travel press all show up “arrangements” will be made to take care of both, I’m told.

“We are building in flexibility for any number of scenarios,” a source said.

Meanwhile, the DNCC is now going to allow one blog outlet from each state to get a credential to have a seat on the floor with the homestate delegation during the entire convention.
