Cleveland in the Running to Host 2016 Democratic National Convention

If you haven't yet heard, the Democratic party has announced that six U.S. cities are in the running to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention, and Cleveland has secured a spot on that list.

In April, the DNC invited 15 cities to bid, but it has since narrowed the pool down to six — the other five cities include Columbus, New York, Phoenix, Philadelphia and Birmingham.

Much like the Republican National Convention, which also recently selected Cleveland as a top 2016 site contender, the Democrats will evaluate the city over the coming months before making a decision, likely in early 2015.

The RNC is expected to make its decision by late summer.
