Former Vice President Dick Cheney apparently favors a 2016 GOP convention in Kansas City.
2016 Republican candidate for Governor Catherine Hanaway tweeted out a picture of her posing with Cheney at a reception in Kansas City Wednesday night.
“A big thank to Mr. Vice President and Mrs Cheney for coming to Kansas City to support @KCRNC2016”.
The Kansas City Start reports Cheney also made a pitch for holding the GOP convention earlier in the 2016 election year.
Of the four finalists the site selection committee is considering, only Kansas City’s Sprint Center Arena does not have a pro sports team as anchor tenant.
Professional basketball and hockey teams play into the spring with many season lasting longer because if the playoff schedules.
The GOP would want access to the convention site in the spring if it wants to hold a June convention.
