Original post, 8:57 a.m.: Later today, the Republican National Committee is expected to announce which cities vying to host the 2016 GOP convention will make it to the next round of consideration. Denver is up against three key cities in Ohio (Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati), plus Las Vegas, Dallas, Phoenix and Kansas City.
Who'll move on? Well, the debate among commenters on the RNC Facebook page features some love for Denver, but quite a bit of hate as well. Read the ten most memorable takes below.
Denver is a liberal shithole, Kansas City is a Democrat strong hold with high crime, low jobs, and blight, Ditto for Cleveland, and Vegas is Harry Reid country ...That leaves Dallas.....
Come on! We need some conservative enthusiasm in Denver! Really, it should be a no brainer!
NOT DENVER!!! It's a lost cause and owned by the Democrats. No need to give them more money.
Denver us conservatives here need your help. We want the liberals here to hear the conservatives loud and strong. We need you to convert them.
Screw Denver. Go to Cincinnati and wrap up Ohio.
Dallas not Denver. Colorado is way to liberal.
Salt lake city ok Denver, keep Vegas out of it, . Too many distractions.
Denver!!! Or SLC., give me free tickets!
Denver hosted the Dems, so Denver should now host the Republicans, for a cleansing effect!
