RNC: Site Selection Committee to make recommendation Tuesday

Dallas or Cleveland? It's expected to be whittled down to just one city by Tuesday, when The RNC Site Selection Committee will hand over their recommendation to the Republican National Committee.

Cleveland pulled out all stops when the selection committee visited and Enid Mickelson, Chairwoman, loved the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee's overall pitch to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. 

"You have a remarkable City. You have wonderful leaders who are absolutely committed to this convention," Mickelson said after she visited Cleveland

The Site Selection Committee got a great look at downtown Cleveland but it appears this city's people won over committee members to make the final cut of two cities. 

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

"Where we stand today validates our ability to host a major convention. You see that in Chairwoman Mickelson's comments today. We want to make sure we put it across the finish line and finish first," said Terry Egger, Cleveland 2016 Host Committee Chairman.
