WASHINGTON (MyNews4.com, KRNV, AP & Gop.com) -- The Republican National Committee’s (RNC) Site Selection Committee shortened the list of potential sites for the 2016 Republican National Convention from eight to six cities. Among them, Las Vegas. Other cities moving on to the next round of consideration are Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, and Kansas City. Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated from the run.
A small team of RNC staff will visit the six cities for a more in-depth and technical look at financing, convention venues, media workspace, and hotels. After the examination, the Selection Site Committee (SSC) will reconvene -- following the RNC's Spring Meeting -- to decide on which of these six cities will receive official site visits from the full RNC delegation.
A decision on the final cities up for bid is expected in May.
