Hello, Cleveland

On July 8th, 2014, the Republican National Committee finalized its decision to have Cleveland, Ohio, as the official host city of the 2016 GOP Convention. More specifically, the multi-day event will be held at the Quicken Loans Arena, which is well known for being home to the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. As the convention will be held sometime in June or July 2016, expect great summer weather to coincide with the nomination of the Republican candidate for the presidency.
