Some news from recent weeks:

Kansas City Democratic Mayor Sly James traveled to Boston in August to pitch KC for the 2016 Republican National Convention:

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay wants an I-70 convention package, with the Dems in St. Louis and the GOP in KC.

A Las Vegas bid seems to depend on Sheldon Adelson’s support (i.e., money). Especially since there’s no suitable venue, and Adelson may need to build one.
