KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Kansas City wants the chance to host the 2024 Republican National Convention.
Mayor Quinton Lucas’s office confirmed to FOX4 that the city plans to submit a bid to host the political event in which the party will select its presidential and vice-presidential candidates for the 2024 presidential election.
Kansas City also submitted an offer to host the 2016 RNC, but Cleveland was selected instead. Could 2024 be the year of Kansas City?
National conventions are still three years away, but a lot can – and will happen – before then. The tendering process has already started.
The Republican National Committee will hold a meeting Tuesday in Washington DC for cities interested in hosting the convention.
Executives in Las Vegas have already announced they are pitching to host the Republican Party convention, KLAS Reports. Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has also expressed interest in hosting Republican or Democratic national conventions in 2024.
“For me, this request is not about politics, it is about bringing millions of dollars of convention activity back to our local economy,” Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said previously.
The three-day convention is expected to bring an economic impact of around $ 200 million to the host city as delegates and media converge for the high-profile event.
