CLEVELAND -- It will be nervous nail-biting time at Cleveland City Hall and other key government and business offices around town a week from Thursday.

That's the day word is expected from Republicans whether Cleveland has made it to the next round of competition to host the 2016 GOP convention.

Last month a technical advance team visited the six cities still in competition to make sure claims contained in their bids conformed with reality. The cities are Cleveland, Denver, Las Vegas, Dallas, Kansas City and Cincinnati.

May 22 the site selection committee will have a conference call meeting that's closed to the press.

An announcement is expected afterward.

The committee is expected to narrow the field down to cities that will get full committee visits between June 2 and June 13.

The convention-winning city is expected to be chosen by the full Republican National Committee governing body in late summer or fall.

Cleveland is also vying for the Democratic convention.
