2016 Democratic Convention May be Coming to Columbus

Posted: Updated:
The 2016 Democratic National Convention might be coming to a city close to home. 

The city of Columbus, Ohio has submitted an application to host the Democratic convention after it was denied by the Republican National Convention.  

An event of this size could bring in $150 to $200 million of revenue to the state, as well attract as many as 45 thousand people.  

Columbus Congresswoman Joyce Beatty supports the application, as she believes Columbus is a "progressive beacon" of the swing state.
