Republican National Convention not coming to Detroit

WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- The Republican Party will not hold their 2016 National Convention in Detroit.

The party's chairman announced Thursday that several other cities including Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati were in the running to host the event.  Some in the GOP pushed Detroit as the convention site to showcase the Republican Party's principles just as they did in 1980 leading to the election of Ronald Reagan.

Republican consultants argued that years of Democratic ideas led to the Detroit's bankruptcy.
