6 Cities Submit Bids to Host DNC in 2016

June 9, 2014

Six cities submitted bids to host the Democratic National Convention in 2016: Birmingham, Cleveland, Columbus, New York, Philadelphia and Phoenix, Democrats announced Saturday.

In April, the Democratic National Committee invited 15 cities to make a proposal and these are the ones that responded by the deadline.
A Technical Advisory Committee will now evaluate all six cities, making site visits and studying their logistical ability to handle the crowds of people. A final decision will be announced either late this year or in early 2015.
