    Dispute over venue can be resolved, key Democrats say - By Chris Osher, Denver Post
    'The union has grave reservations,' said Dave Minshall, who handles public relations for the stagehands. 'I mean the Democrats ought to act like Democrats.'

    Minshall clarified later in the day that although he was drafting a news release for Taylor on the matter, his comments were on his own behalf. He said that when the Pepsi Center opened in 1999, replacing McNichols Arena, the decision to hire Phoenix- based Rhino Staging left about 300 local union members without those jobs.

    'Why are they holding the convention at the Pepsi Center?' he said. 'That's the house of Wal-Mart, and you can't get any more anti-union than Wal-Mart.'

    The 700,000-square-foot Pepsi Center is the property of sports entrepreneur Stan Kroenke, who is married to Ann Walton, an heir to the Wal-Mart fortune.
