This morning Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced that three Ohio cities are among the eight finalists to host the 2016 RNC convention. Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland are all submitting bids to the RNC.
“The road to the White House runs through Ohio. Â It is the ultimate battleground state,” said Ohio Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges. Â “Not only does Ohio have three world-class cities capable of hosting a national convention, but bringing one here would put our candidate and Party’s message directly in front of voters. Â We will do everything we can to support our cities’ bids for the convention.”
