Another GOP Convention in TX?

By Kurt Gilchrist

Republican Party offiicials will be in Dallas Thursday--continuing work on where the 2016 national convention will be held.

The visit to Texas follows what has been described as an impressive stay in Denver--where some might think Colorado's recent legalization of marijuana might be a negative for the GOP. Others aren't so sure. 

"Some Republicans may say that's exactly why we want to go there--because we want to attract young people, a different constituency. If we go to Denver, Colorado, maybe that will show we are a young political party--reaching out to young, new voters" said University of Texas-Arlington Political Scientist Allan Saxe. 

Still, Saxe told 550 KTSA News Dallas does have a real shot of alnading the concention--despite some complaints about the where Cowboys Stadium is in proximity to hotels in the area. 

"I think Dallas has a pretty good chance" Saxe said.
