CLEVELAND (AP) — Local and state officials are jubilant that Cleveland is the likely host for the 2016 Republican National Convention.

The GOP’s site selection committee on Tuesday picked Cleveland over Dallas as convention host. The formal decision will come next month when the 168-member Republican National Committee meets in Washington.

Democratic Cuyahoga County executive and gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald says the choice shows Cleveland is in the midst of a historical renaissance.

Ohio’s GOP chairman Matt Borges credited Republicans and Democrats alike for their efforts in showcasing Cleveland and its capabilities during the site selection panel’s visits to the city.

Republican Gov. John Kasich says the convention will not only benefit a rejuvenated Cleveland, but it also will showcase the rest of the state and its business advancements.
