GOP visits NE Ohio as possible convention site

Associated Press • May 1, 2014 at 3:30 PM

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

Local media outlets report the chairwoman of the convention’s site selection committee said she was leaving with a favorable impression of Cleveland. But she declined to say whether Cleveland met the convention criteria.

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

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