Cleveland Wins GOP Convention The Republican National Committee has announced what some consider an unconventional choice for its 2016 presidential nominating convention: Cleveland. How, exactly, did Cleveland beat out Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Phoenix and, finally, Dallas? We'll find out Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas. We'll also look at logistics, local costs and the benefits and potential hassles, too, that the convention might bring.
