Nevada GOP Hopeful For Convention Nod

(Las Vegas, NV) — Nevada’s Lieutenant Governor Brian Krolicki says Las Vegas has a good chance of hosting the 2016 Republican National Convention.

He tells the “Review-Journal” Sin City can meet all of the party’s requirements, which includes raising at least $55-million in private donations.

Krolicki says the GOP can gather in one of several locations, including the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Thomas and Mack Center.

The host committee will submit a bid within the next few months.

Other cities, including Phoenix and Kansas City, are also interested in holding the convention. A final decision is expected by next summer.
