Jack St. Martin, executive director of the Nevada Host Committee, cited the area's diversity in making his case for Vegas.

“Las Vegas makes perfect sense for the GOP Convention,” St. Martin said in a statement, according to Politico. “Las Vegas knows how to host something of this magnitude and Nevada’s diverse demographics make total sense for the GOP to come here.”

Kansas City has also signaled its intention to host the 2016 RNC.
