ACK - GOP Bidding Denver for 2016 Convention

WASHINGTON The Colorado GOP is preparing to make a bid for Denver to host the 2016 Republican National Convention potentially delivering the state a repeat economic boost received when it hosted the Democratic National Convention five years ago.

Party President Ryan Call confirmed the news to The Denver Post Wednesday.

Besides Denver's already proven record at hosting the massive four-day international event that draws roughly 50,000 visitors, Call said a 2016 GOP convention in Denver would be apropos because it will be "bookends of eight years of an Obama regime."

6. Let tampa tell you about the GOP

They purposefully made their own little town, out of Franklin Street, a deserted area with avacant dept sotres that was once Downtown Tampa. They did eveything they could to keep people out of the local stores. They even had a cigar tent which rpevented the GOp from going to the local cigar bars, which is a tampa specialty. They tried paying the lowest rate pssible for Hotelrooms.
