Democrats eye 15 cities for 2016 convention

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Democratic National Committee has asked Chicago, New York and 13 others to make a pitch to host the presidential nominating convention in 2016.

The DNC on Tuesday said the party will accept proposals through June 6 and will pick a host city either late this year or early in 2015.

In addition to Chicago and New York, the cities under consideration include: Atlanta; Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Miami; Nashville; Orlando; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City.

Some cities seem more likely than others. For instance, President Barack Obama, who will be leaving the White House in 2017, calls Chicago home and his potential successor Hillary Rodham Clinton is from Illinois. Clinton also represented New York in the Senate.
