Ok, so Cleveland will host the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Hooray for you, Republicans in Cincinnati say wearily, after trying and failing to win the big prize for the Queen City.
Now, the question is, who will come out of that convention at the Quicken Loans Arena as the GOP nominees for president and vice president?
There is a possibility – slim, at this point, but a possibility – that the first presidential nominating convention to be held in Ohio in 80 years will nominate an Ohioan, either for president or vice president.
Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson, Cleveland Chief of Police Michael McGrath, Cleveland chief deputy Ed Tomba, Cleveland Safety Director Marty Flask and Special Agent in Charge of Cleveland FBI operations Stephen Anthony held a news conference this morning.
