Well, cross Phoenix, AZ and Columbus, OH off the list of potential GOP convention cities for 2016. Both have been axed from contention.
Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City (Missouri), and Las Vegas remain in the hunt. Those six cities will be further studied by the site selection committee before the finalists are selected for a site visit by the entire RNC to determine who will ultimately host the convention.
Phoenix was dead last in the Virtucon poll on where the convention would be held while Columbus was fifth, just ahead of Cleveland and KC.
