Members of Congress Pitch Their Town as Host for DNC Convention

As the Democratic National Committee is making site visits to potential host cities for the 2016 Democratic National Convention, The Washington Post’s Jackie Kucinich visited Capitol Hill to hear from several Members from finalist cities on why their town should be chosen.

Philadelphia’s Rep. Robert Brady (D-PA) entices with the “real” Philadelphia cheesesteak. Brooklyn’s Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) touts the new Manhattan as the home of Jay-Z. Birmingham’s Rep. Terri Sewell promotes that “magical things happen” in her town. And Phoenix’s Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) promises that everyday in Phoenix is a great hair day.

Also in the running as host city for the Democratic National Convention: Columbus (Ohio) and Cleveland, which was selected earlier this month as host city for the 2016 Republican National Convention. Philadelphia, Chicago and Miami have all hosted both conventions in the same year, most recently being Miami in 1972.
