GOP vets convention sites

– A team checking potential sites for the 2016 Republican National Convention has visited Cleveland, one of two Ohio cities still in the running as a possible host.

Wednesday’s visit came a day after a team toured Cincinnati. Other finalists are Las Vegas, Denver, Dallas and Kansas City, Mo.

The chairwoman of the site-selection committee said she was leaving with a favorable impression of Cleveland, according to media reports, but did not say whether the city met the convention criteria.

Team members checked out public transportation with a trip on a trolley and visited the Cleveland Convention Center and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ arena.

GOP teams are checking cities’ financing, venues, media workspace and hotels before choosing a site.
