Phoenix is hot... but we don't have hurricanes #RNC16 #DNC16

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton courted both Republicans and Democrats here this week in an effort to persuade leaders of one of the political parties to hold its national convention in Phoenix in 2016.

“Phoenix will be rolling out the red carpet for whichever party is wise enough to choose Phoenix for their convention,” Stanton said Friday.

Stanton, a Democrat, joined Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, a Republican, in making a pitch to members of the Republican National Committee at the group’s winter meeting here this week. Stanton and Smith were here for a separate meeting of the nonpartisan U.S. Conference of Mayors.

Stanton also met with officials of the Democratic National Committee.

“It may be hot in Phoenix in August, but we’ve got air conditioning and short walks between buildings, and no one will have to worry about hurricanes,” Stanton said, referring to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., which was hit by Hurricane Isaac.

The fact that the Phoenix area will be the site of the 2015 Super Bowl and the 2016 College Football Playoff championship game should help persuade the parties to come to Phoenix, Stanton said. - AZ Central

He must not have heard the news that the convention will most likely be in June or July. The Average high ranges from 104 - 106 over the summer months.
