(Downtown) - The Technical Team of the GOP Site Selection committee came and kicked the tires in Cleveland today

Site Selection Committee Chair Enid Mickelson said they are delighted with the rebirth of the city, and have no doubt about the enthusiasm to hold the convention here.

Mickelson held a brief news conference with Mayor Frank Jackson at the Medical Mart in downtown Cleveland.

Cleveland is one of 6 cities in the running - if we make the next cut, the entire site selection team will come for another visit.

The technical team has already visited Denver, Las Vegas, Dallas, Kansas City, and Cincinnati.
