Nevada officials want the GOP to bet on ‘Sin City.’ A newly formed committee is making a formal bid to hold the 2016 Republican National Convention in Las Vegas. The committee has launched a web site, lasvegas2016.com

Other cities that have reportedly also expressed interest include: Kansas City, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, New Orleans and Charlotte.

The competition begins in earnest next year, when the Republican National Committee starts meeting with representatives from potential host cities.
