There will be no Viva Las Vegas for Republicans in 2016. Las Vegas, considered a front-runner to host the 2016 GOP National Convention, withdrew from consideration. The Republican National Committee was meeting Thursday to whittle the list. In Las Vegas, the host committee was proposing to host Republicans in the Las Vegas Convention Center, which has 3.2 million square feet of convention space but does not have the skyboxes sought by the RNC for the event.
