A Press Conference was held this afternoon at Quicken Loans Arena with the Republican National Convention Committee along with Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Executive Chair of the Cleveland Host Committee for the 2016 Republican National Convention, Terry Egger.
Mr. Egger states that the Cleveland Host Committee has “been hard at work 24/7 preparing for this visit. We want to demonstrate to our guests at the RNC that this is a city that is completely all in.” Mayor Jackson said that “Our effort is to show the Republican National Committee that Cleveland is the place for their 2016 Convention.”
Both Republican National Convention Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Enid Mickleson, Chairwoman of the RNC Site Selection had nothing but praise for our great city. Ms. Mickleson says that we have “…a remarkable city. You have wonderful leaders who pulled together, who are absolutely committed to this city.” Mr. Priebus said that he is “totally impressed” with Cleveland, and that what has totally impressed the committee about Cleveland has been “the hunger, the commitment and the willingness to do whatever it takes to make this work.”
As of now the RNC Committee does not have a definite, concrete deadline, but is aiming to have the chosen city know by mid-August.
