Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati officials all figure Ohio’s importance as a presidential swing state will help their cause.

All three say they have good facilities, hotel space and transportation links for hosting such large conventions.

The Dayton Daily News reported the capital of Columbus has gotten an early jump, and Cincinnati is a latecomer in the competition.

Columbus officials said Nationwide Arena could host the convention, with plenty of convention facilities and hotels nearby.
