POLITICAL CONVENTION-OHIO
Cleveland leaders organize to woo political convention; Columbus, Cincinnati also want to host

CLEVELAND


Cleveland nonprofit groups and community leaders are launching an organized effort to lure a national political convention to northeast Ohio's largest city in 2016.

The Plain Dealer reports a nonprofit corporation has been formed to work on bids, and city and county leaders will consider legislation to assemble a pledge of financial support or other services, such as police staffing.

Mayor Frank Jackson says Cleveland has the necessary event and hotel space for such a convention, which could help boost the local economy and tourism.

It's not the only city courting a convention in the presidential swing state.

Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati each had representatives visiting Washington recently to chat with Republican officials who will choose the site for their 2016 convention.
