GOP convention dream ends for Vegas and Cincinnati

WASHINGTON (AP) — The odds of hosting the Republican Party's next presidential convention have improved for Dallas, Denver, Cleveland and Kansas City. Two other players, Las Vegas and Cincinnati, have folded.

The four remaining cities will be making in-city pitches to party officials looking for a host with ample meeting space, hotels and transportation to accommodate tens of thousands of visitors.

Another crucial requirement: deep pockets. The host city would have to pick up a tab as high as $60 million.

Dallas is seen as a leading contender, in part because of its coalition of wealthy donors, ties to the Bush family and an oil industry that could foot the bill.
