"Associated Press has reported that Phoenix and Salt Lake City will join Tampa as possible locations"
OK. first. Why the heck would we want to host the convention in a SOLID red state like Utah!? Does the RNC want to nominate Mitt Romney in Mormon land or something?
second. (in case your wondering)I may be a secular conservative, but I got nothing against Mormons.
third, Arizona would be ok, but not as good as Tampa.
forth, a RNC source says this about Tampa:
"I think Tampa is right there," said Joe Gruters, chairman of the Sarasota Republican Party. "And I think Florida over the last two presidential cycles has proven how important it is and Florida may once again become the swing state and that's why I think at the end of the day they'll choose Florida."
DUH! FL should be the host state every year imo :P
