#RNC16 invites 3 additional cities; list up to 27 #Charlotte #Nashville #SanDiego

The Republican National Committee has invited Charlotte to bid on its 2016 political convention, and Mayor Patrick Cannon said Wednesday that he will meet with city staff members to discuss whether Charlotte should submit a proposal.

Charlotte was considered a good host of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, and North Carolina could be a closely contested state in the next presidential election – two factors that could help the city’s bid. - Charlotte Observer

 In addition to Charlotte, Nashville and San Diego were added to the list we reported on Sunday.

Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Ohio, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New Orleans, New York City, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego, Seattle, St. Louis

Salt Lake City has decided not to bid

Even though Salt Lake City was runner-up to host the 2012 Republican National Convention, state GOP leaders have decided not to bid again after all.

"The enthusiasm has to be tempered with the realities you're going to face," State Republican Party Chairman James Evans said, just a few months after enthusiastically announcing the party planned to pursue the 2016 convention. - Deseret News
