More then two dozens staffers associated with the Republican National Convention Committee came to Kansas City Wednesday for the city’s final site visit before the Republicans announce who will host their 2016 convention.
Kansas City made the final cut of host cities, standing with Cleveland, Denver and Dallas as potential sites for the 2016 event. Cleveland, with its location in the key swing state of Ohio, might be seen as the favorite — “The way that this has started in Cleveland, I think the rest of the cities are going to have a lot of work to do,” RNC chair Reince Priebus said after the site visit there Tuesday — but members of KC’s bid committee have been singing an optimistic tune about the city’s chances for weeks.
