|Cities seriously expressing interest in hosting the 2016 Democratic National Convention include Columbus, Philadelphia and St. Louis.
In February 2014, the Democratic National Committee invited 30 cities to bid on hosting the convention. They include Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, El Paso, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Memphis, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Nashville-Davidson, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Orlando, New Orleans, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and Tampa.
To date, Austin, Chicago, Kansas City, Portland, St. Louis, and Tampa have stated that they are not planning to bid on the 2016 convention.
The 2012 host city for the Democratic Convention, Charlotte, was chosen in February of 2011. We may therefore have to wait until 2015 before we get a decision.
