This week, the delegation from the Democratic National Convention will have the royal treatment as they scout out the city as one of the possible locations to hold the convention. Cleveland has already nabbed the Republican National Convention, and the swing state could grab both conventions. Columbus hasn’t been the delegations’ first stop either. Coming off a visit to Birmingham, officials will visit New York, Philadelphia, and Phoenix after their Columbus stop. While here they will look for how viable the city is for the convention including arenas, hotels, convention centers and more.
