The Democratic National Committee announced it posted online the 2012 Democratic Party Platform, which will be officially adopted by the delegates to the convention Tuesday.
The party platform articulates President Barack Obama's vision for moving our country forward by restoring economic security and building an economy that is built to last.
In July, the platform drafting committee, chaired by former Gov. Ted Strickland, met in Minneapolis to receive input from the public and to write the first draft of the platform.
Then on Aug. 11, members of the platform committee, chaired by Mayor Cory Booker and retired Lt. Gen. Claudia Kennedy, met in Detroit.
At the platform committee meeting in Detroit, committee members submitted amendments to the draft platform before unanimously approving the draft and sending it to Charlotte for the vote by delegates Tuesday.
