The two Ohio cities still in contention to host the 2016 Republican National Convention will be visited in late April by party staff or members of a selection committee.
Teams will visit Cincinnati on April 29 and Cleveland on April 30 for a more in-depth look at factors such as financing, convention venues, media workspace and hotels.
The visits will help officials decide which of the cities on the short list get visits from the full RNC delegation before the convention site is chosen.
Republican officials plan to pick the host city this summer, and Las Vegas has emerged as an early leading contender. The other cities in the running are Dallas, Denver and Kansas City, Mo.
