GOP Convention Committee Visits Vegas
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Republican National Committee team has paid a visit to Las Vegas to explore the logistics for staging the GOP’s 2016 national convention.
The RNC technical site selection committee met Thursday with Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority chief Rossi Ralenkotter and members of the GOP team putting together the city’s bid.
Former Gov. Bob List, a senior adviser to the Las Vegas effort, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the team looked over the Las Vegas Convention Center, the proposed site of the 2016 convention.
Las Vegas is one of six finalists vying to host the convention. The other cities being visited by the team this week and next are Denver, Dallas, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Kansas City.
