Downtown Columbus on a late Summer afternoon.
The Washington PostChris Cillizza gives a review of each of the cities that are making bids for the 2016 Republican National Convention. It's pretty interesting to read and here is an excerpt.
Worth noting: The whole if-we-put-the-convention-there-we-will-win-the-state thing has very little evidence of actually, you know, working. Obama lost North Carolina in 2012. Ditto Mitt Romney in Florida. The last time Republicans won the state where they held their convention was way back in 1992, when Houston played host to the nominating fete: George H.W. Bush won Texas but lost the presidency to Bill Clinton.
I do not agree with everything Cillizza says regarding the cities but it is a pretty fascinating read nonetheless.
