1. DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

Democrats and the energy industry ... It's complicated

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Duke Energy Corp. spokesman Dave Scanzoni insists the Charlotte-based company -- which has spent nearly $3.6 million lobbying Congress in 2012, according to the Center for Responsive Politics -- isn't looking to promote specific energy policies this week at the Democratic National Convention here, or even generally influence lawmakers or delegates, despite its prominent role in the festivities. "Duke Energy's goal in bringing the convention to Charlotte is all about Charlotte's economic development," Scanzoni said. But other organizations -- including the American Petroleum Institute and America's Natural Gas Alliance -- acknowledge that sponsoring events or transportation here isn't merely a goodwill gesture toward citizens interested in their government.
