In The Region:

The Democrats site selection team will be in Columbus next week to try to determine if Ohio’s capital city should host the 2016 Democratic National Convention. 

No state has ever hosted both presidential conventions in separate cities in the same year. But Ohio’s Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says this state remains crucial in presidential elections. And he thinks the Republicans’ choice of Cleveland for their convention bodes well for the Democrats in Columbus.

“I know for a fact, many of the corporate leaders are Republicans. I’ve been very impressed with how they’ve stepped up. Just like in Cleveland and my support for coming to Cleveland for the Republicans. It’s not about political party for us.
"As much as I’m going to be pulling, obviously, for the Democratic candidate, working for him, it’s not about that. It’s really about Ohio, and this will be such a great shot in the arm if we get both of them.” 

Brown was meeting today (Wednesday) with Deborah Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee who is heading the convention site search.
