The Republican National Committee and Cleveland are speaking today about the RNC's 2016 site selection visit.

Those in attendance at the "Q" include RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, RNC Site Selection Committee Chairwoman Enid Mickelsen, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, and Cleveland Host Committee Chair Terry Egger.

"What has totally impressed the committee about Cleveland has been the hunger and commitment and the willingness to do whatever it takes to make this work.", says Rience Priebus, RNC Chair.

Cleveland is one of four cities still in the running that includes Kansas City, Denver, and Dallas. 

If we get the gig we could see more than 50,000 visitors.

The economic impact alone could be nearly $300 million. 

There are 13 RNC voting members. We should know by the fall if we got the bid.
