Republican Presidential Convention Will Start on June 27 if Kansas City is Chosen; Otherwise July 18

According to this article, if the Republican Party chooses Kansas City for its 2016 convention site, the convention will start on June 27. If one of the other three cities that is under consideration is chosen, it will start on July 18. The city will be chosen in August 2014.

If the convention does start on June 27, that will be the earliest major party presidential convention since 1948, when Republicans met starting on June 21 in Philadelphia. A convention that early will put pressure on states that hold presidential primaries in June to move them to an earlier month. Those states are California, New Jersey, Montana, South Dakota, New Mexico, and Utah.

    I gather from the article that the GOP actually would prefer the earlier (June) date. By that standard alone, the wise bet would be KC, the only finalist city not hindered by NBA commitments.

    Dallas, TX or Cleveland, OH.

    How many OH state cops would be needed to guard any Cleveland convention ???
