RNC recommends Cleveland for 2016 convention

WASHINGTON – A Republican National Committee panel is recommending Cleveland to host the party’s 2016 presidential convention.

The Republicans’ site selection committee on Tuesday reviewed bids from Cleveland and Dallas. Both cities went into Tuesday’s final session as strong contenders and with loyal advocates.

The full 168-member RNC is expected to ratify the choice next month.

Paying for the convention was the top criterion for the 12-member site selection committee. The previous two GOP conventions have sapped party dollars during election years, and party Chairman Reince Priebus has insisted the host city not leave the central party picking up the tab, which is expected to be around $60 million.

Democrats have not yet picked a host city for their 2016 convention.
