GOP leaders should choose Dallas for its 2016 convention because the city has plenty of hotel rooms, has the ability to raise enough funding, is centrally located, and has a proven track record of hosting big events.
Those are some of the highlights of the city's proposal to host the Republican Convention. Dallas officials have kept a tight lid on details -- until now. Today, various Dallas representatives are in Washington to make their pitch. They include Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau President Phillip Jones and retired U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. A press conference is being held this morning in Washington to discuss the city's presentation.
