ClevelandBy Lynn R. Mitchell

The Republican National Committee has provided a way to add your two cents’ worth about where to hold the 2016 national convention. There’s a push for Cleveland in a swing state where GOP votes will be needed in 2016. So be sure to Tweet:

@RNCSiteVote: #Cleveland

Why Cleveland? We need Ohio! Republican Governor John Kasich would be welcoming with open arms.

But primarily Republicans need Ohio. Be sure to tweet #Cleveland.
