DNC and RNC City Selection by Uber Availability, Direct Flights, Last Call, and Temp

Game-Show-Last-CallOver the weekend, the Democratic National Committee announced six U.S. cities – Birmingham, Cleveland, Columbus, New York, Philadelphia, and Phoenix – that have submitted bids to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Already announced for the RNC: Cleveland, Dallas, Denver and Kansas City.

While final decisions have not and will not be made until later this year or early 2015, we’ve made the call based on what’s important: average temperature, Uber availability, direct flights from DCA, and last call. So heads up DNC and RNC, we’ve selected your 2015 convention destinations. Disqualifiers (average temperatures above 90*, no Uber service, only one non-stop flight from Reagan, and early last call times) have the strikethrough.
