From an article last week in the Arizona Republic:

"I think there is absolutely an opportunity to make it happen," said Gordon, although he said Phoenix likely would have more ammunition by 2012 with new hotel rooms and a light- rail system up and fully running. "But if we submit for 2008, we'll be serious about it," Gordon said. "Obviously, we'll have to seek a lot of support from the business community and the party to help sponsor it." The GOP's site selection committee is to decide on finalist cities by mid-summer. The committee will make a final selection by Feb. 1, 2007. The mayor said Phoenix also would be interested in hosting a Democratic National Convention.
