CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
The Republican National Committee narrowed down their list for which city will host the 2016 convention. And, Cleveland is still a contender!
In addition to Cleveland — Dallas, Denver, and Kansas City rounds out the final four.
Ohio is a hot swing state in primary elections.
Following today’s meeting of the Site Selection Committee, Chairwoman Enid Mickelsen issued the following statement:
“Today the committee determined that Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, and Kansas City will receive official visits from the full RNC site selection delegation. All cities excelled in nearly every aspect of their bids and presentation this year, but these four cities stood out from the field from the start of this process and deserve a deeper look by the full committee.
Prior to the committee’s vote, Cincinnati and Las Vegas notified the RNC that they would no longer pursue their bid to host the 2016 convention. While the committee understands their decision, both cities made a compelling case for 2016 and would make excellent hosts should they pursue efforts to host a future RNC convention.
