POLITICAL CONVENTIONS-COLUMBUS
Rejected by the GOP, city of Columbus will try to lure 2016 Democratic convention

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 7:41 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Though Columbus was rejected as a site for the 2016 Republican National Convention, area tourism officials say they will now focus on luring the Democrats.

Officials said they'll try to capitalize on the national media exposure garnered for the city during its bid for the GOP event. Last week, the GOP eliminated Columbus while keeping Cincinnati and Cleveland alive as possible convention sites.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the city of Columbus had pledged a total of $250,000 toward efforts to bring either convention to town in 2016, and the money left will now be used to compete for the Democratic convention.

Brian Ross, CEO of the tourism bureau Experience Columbus, says a political convention would bring $150 million to $200 million and 45,000 people to central Ohio.
