Nashville May Host 2016 Democratic Convention

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

Nashville was one of nearly three dozen cities who received a letter this month asking if they were interested in hosting the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

It costs a city between $50 million to $60 million to host the convention, but the return on investment could be three times more than the price tag.

"Hosting a national convention can be a great economic boon for any city," DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz wrote in a note to the mayors, which was obtained by CNN. "Past conventions have injected approximately $150 million to $200 million directly into the host city's economy."

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean has said in the past he is interested in hosting a political convention.

Among the cities that received letters from the DNC are:

Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus-Ohio, Dallas, Detroit, El Paso, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Memphis, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Nashville-Davidson, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Orlando, New Orleans, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa.
