Three Ohio Cities Bid for 2016 Political Conventions
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Ohio's three largest cities make a play for the 2016 political conventions.
The events could elevate the state's already high political capital and mean hundreds of millions of dollars for a city's economy.
Officials in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus tell the Huffington Post they plan to apply to host either the Republican or Democratic national conventions.
The state hasn't hosted a major political convention since 1936. The host cities would have to raise around 50-mllion in private funds to be considered.
