RNC looking at Cincinnati for 2016 convention
WASHINGTON (WKRC) -- The Republican National Committee's Site Selection Committee voted to narrow the list of sites in the running for the 2016 Republican National Convention Wednesday.
The list that contained eight cities is now down to six. Cincinnati is in the next round for consideration. The other cities are: Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City and Las Vegas.
RNC staff will visit the six cities for an in-depth and technical look at financing, convention venues, media workspace and hotels.
The committee will then reconvene to decide which of the six cities will receive the official site visit from the full RNC delegation.
"I want to thank each city for their tireless efforts and hard work throughout this process, and I look forward to this next phase as we select a city to help us nominate the next Republican
President of the United States," says the committee's chair Enid Mickelsen.
