Dallas, Cleveland finalists for GOP convention

Associated Press Updated: June 25, 2014 at 1:35 pm

BOSTON (AP) — Just two cities remain in the sweepstakes to host the Republican Party's next presidential nominating convention.

Republican National Committee members on Wednesday selected two finalists: Dallas and Cleveland. The decision eliminates Denver and Kansas City, Missouri from the running.

Several cities have been competing for the chance to host the 2016 Republican National Convention, which attracts thousands of political activists, donors and reporters every four years. RNC leaders are expected to select the winning convention site later this summer.

Dallas' chances are strengthened by its coalition of wealthy donors with ties to the Bush family and the oil industry. Cleveland sits in the heart of Ohio, a perennial swing state.

Republican leaders want their convention held in the early summer of 2016.
