Officials in Cleveland and Columbus say they will also apply to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, a Democrat, is making a first-time bid for a national convention that he says will show the world the growing metropolitan area has "swagger"; he touts Columbus as a swing city that could tilt Ohio in a candidate’s direction.

Cincinnati, which has the support of Republican House Speaker John Boehner, says it is home to some of the nation’s most generous GOP donors.

In Washington, D.C., to give his pitch, Cleveland’s Democratic mayor, Frank Jackson, made clear his city was ready to finally host a convention.

"We went at this hard eight years ago," Jackson said, stressing that Cleveland had learned its lesson and submitted an improved 300-page bid that highlighted the city’s fresh supply of hotels and restaurants. "This is the year to win it. We deserve it."
