|The city of Las Vegas, Nevada has become the first to launch a bid to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. Will Republicans choose the 'Gambling Capital of the World' as their host while Americans struggle to pay the bills? We wouldn't be surprised. 'Sin City 2016' or 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas 2016' might be the slogan. Chances of Vegas hosting the 2016 RNC are, or should be, about the same as you walking away from Vegas a winner.

Cities expressing interest in hosting the 2016 Republican National Convention include Charlotte, Kansas City, Phoenix, St. Louis and Salt Lake City. The 2012 host city for the Republican Convention, Tampa, was chosen two and a half years earlier in May of 2010. We may therefore be awaiting a decision in mid 2014.
