without knowing the positives and negatives of the candidate cities, I would suggest that they choose a city whose economy has been stabbed in the back by the democrats' idiotic economic policies.

Ohio being a swing state should top the list. I really think Las Vegas is a bad idea and will make republicans look like they are only out for a good time not the business of winning an election.

Las Vegas would be a perfect candidate... and right in Harry Reid's backyard. Come to think of it, he's up for re-election in '16. ('Course, if things go well enough he'll be minority leader by then anyway.)

They expected that with Tampa in '12 and were sorely disappointed. All the strip clubs and such were gearing up for big business and got almost nothing.

I'm thinking more of a city they can use as a foil and backdrop to illustrate in stark, concrete terms, what happens when democrats are allowed to govern and allowed to implement liberal policies.

Then again, that's probably too sophisticated for today's GOP to pull off.
