WASHINGTON -- The Democratic National Committee has asked Cleveland, Chicago, New York and 12 others to make a pitch to host the presidential nominating convention in 2016.

The other cities under consideration include: Atlanta; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Miami; Nashville; Orlando; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City.

The DNC on Tuesday said the party will accept proposals through June 6 and will pick a host city either late this year or early in 2015.

Some cities seem more likely than others.

For instance, President Barack Obama, who will be leaving the White House in 2017, calls Chicago home and his potential successor Hillary Rodham Clinton is from Illinois. Clinton also represented New York in the Senate.

Maureen Harper, chief of communication for Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, tells that the DNC has issued Requests For Proposals and that "We plan on submitting a proposal. The deadline is early June."
