The Republican National Convention chairman Reince Priebus announced today that the 2016 convention will be held July 18 - 21 in Cleveland.

"The convention will be held significantly earlier than previous election cycles, allowing access to crucial general election funds earlier than ever before to give our nominee a strong advantage heading into Election Day," Priebus told "We're excited to continue working with our partners in Cleveland and we look forward to showcasing everything the city has to offer to our delegates and the world in 2016."

The nabbing of the 2016 convention will, of course, be a huge boost to the local economy, not to mention an opportunity to flaunt our brand spanking new amenities  — a hotel!, a bridge!, a shiny public square!

The question is: Will 550 days be enough time to get the city ready?
