Dallas is one of a six-pack of cities still in the running to host the 2016 Republican National Convention.

During a conference call today, the Republican National Committee's Site Selection Committee voted to eliminate two of the eight cities -- Columbus and Phoenix -- who were vying to host the 2016 RNC convention.

"In any other year, Columbus and Phoenix could have topped the list, but with so many strong cities competing, the committee had to make the difficult decision to narrow the field. Phoenix and Columbus are great American cities, and I hope they’ll pursue a future bid for an RNC convention," Chair Enid Mickelsen said in a statement following the vote.

The six cities that did make it through for the next phase of consideration include Dallas, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Kansas City, and Las Vegas.
