Denver on Monday formally submitted its bid to host the 2016 Republican National Convention, arguing that its success with the 2008 Democratic convention shows it can handle such a large event.

“This is a city and a region that has proven we can do this,” Mayor Michael Hancock said at a press conference.

Colorado also has appealing symbolic value to the RNC. Once reliably red, it has leaned Democratic in the past two presidential elections because of an influx of young, educated coastal professionals and a growing Hispanic voting population. Those are two groups Republicans are trying to win back. And Republicans would be nominating their presidential candidate in the same place Barack Obama was picked to head the Democratic ticket in 2008. – AP
