DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado GOP leaders have confirmed to CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd that they are bidding for Denver to host the 2016 Republican National Convention.
The GOP leaders believe Denver has a good shot at landing the convention since the city has experience with such an event. Denver hosted the 2008 Democratic National Convention where then-Presidential candidate Barack Obama received the party nomination.
If Denver is chosen the city and state of Colorado’s economy could benefit much like it did with the Democratic National Convention.
