Columbus Submits 2016 Democratic Convention Bid
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Columbus has submitted its bid to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
Ohio’s capital touted its convenient transportation, walkable neighborhoods, restaurants and convention center in an application submitted Friday.
The effort comes two months after Columbus was knocked out of the running for the 2016 Republican Convention, which still could go to Cleveland.
Cleveland is also trying to woo Democrats. A tourism bureau spokesman tells media outlets the city has submitted its formal bid.
Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman says has done significant work to prepare for hosting a political convention. Such an event is big business for its host city, attracting 45,000 people and bringing in between $150 million and $200 million.
Columbus Congresswoman Joyce Beatty was among the bid’s backers, calling Columbus “a progressive beacon” in the battleground state.
