(Cincinnati) A delegation from the Republican National Committee will be in the Queen City Tuesday sizing up accommodations around town for the possible location for the 2016 Republican National Convention. Local leaders said they will show off the city's assets by presenting a security plan, the arena for the possible event and hotel rooms. Money will also be in discussions, with the local committee needing to raise at least $50 million to help pay for the convention. Denver, Las Vegas, Cleveland, Dallas and Kansas City, Missouri are also being checked out as possible sites for the big event. They will narrow the field this summer and the full selection committee will make a visit. Then final selection will be made by early fall.
