Cleveland only Ohio city still contending for 2016 GOP convention after Cincinnati withdraws

WASHINGTON — Cleveland remains the only Ohio city in contention to host the Republican National Convention in 2016, after Cincinnati formally withdrew its bid.

The Republican National Committee made the announcement today, paring down its list from six to four. The other cities still in the running besides Cleveland are Dallas, Denver and Kansas City.

Prior to the RNC committee’s vote, Las Vegas also formally withdrew its bid.

In a statement, Cincinnati officials said they were withdrawing their bid after failing to meet RNC criteria regarding adequate convention facilities.

Republican officials plan to pick the host city by late summer.

Columbus was dropped from the list in an earlier round.
