2016 GOP Convention update

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:

Now some of you are scratching your heads;  wondering why on Earth I would make such a trip?  The answer is simple. Kansas City deserves to be in that kind of spotlight.

But Kansas City is short many hotel rooms.

Did you know the decision would come down to politics?

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.
