TAMPA - Several political blogs are reporting that the city of Tampa will be chosen to host the 2012 Republican National Convention.
The RNC has not made it official yet, as the vote and subsequent announcement is scheduled for Wednesday.
The Atlantic, a monthly political magazine, says Tampa has a 90 percent chance of winning the bid.
Tampa is up against Phoenix, Ariz. and Salt Lake City, Utah. Online outlets say Phoenix will likely lose the bid because of the recent heat Arizona has been getting for their newly passed immigration law. Local news reports from Salt Lake City are also pointing to Tampa as the winner.

the Florida vote is way more important than AZ for the Electoral College. There are easy roads to the whitehouse without AZ, but long ones without Florida. This is a good move IMO.
I worked there many moons ago (mid 1980s.) Fantastic place.
Tampa is much better than the liberal cities the RINOS usually pick.
This is good. This way Allen West can accept the nomination in his home state.
That time of the month? I hear midol helps.
What part of he (Crist) is a lying whore makes you think I support him?
Sounds like you are thinking strategically. Hopefully the RNC will as well.
Volunteering is good, but partying is better! And, it should be a great time to party!
Lot of pubbies will be getting their asses handed to them (metaphorically, of course) via Tea Parties and will be more than happy to toe the party/conservative line....again!
I can only hope that is why. FL had 27 EC votes and AZ had 10 last time. Either that or Jeb is going to use it as a platform or George P. Bush or something....
Jeb was a very good Gov and would make a better President than his brother, but we’ve had enough of that family.
The wonderfull thing about ugly enemy trolls is their innate inability to remain concealed.
“You might want to back off your asinine, knee jerk responces when you direct ignorant vitriol against me.”
I never made a knee jerk response to you until YOU made a personal attack. You are the one that needs to back off.
“The wonderfull thing about ugly enemy trolls is their innate inability to remain concealed.”
Again, take some midol and quit being a jerk. I was completely polite to you until you went on a rampage. forget the midol and go for some serious meds there lady
He won't be coming out until he officially switches to the Dems. Until then, Carlos must stay ensconced at Closet Charlie's cottage in Key West.
“...or the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor.”
I only ate there once but it was good.
They should have given it to Phoenix.
They have one in St. Augustine as well now, but nothing beats the original in Tampa.
Better pray no hurricanes during the convention, which will likely be the end of August. Phoenix would be a great place to have the convention if it were in February.
And who will you be in your next incarnation on this website?
Sheesh...your handlers need to give you at least a basic background before you try to play in the real world.
lady, give it a rest. Your ego is gonna get you in trouble.
Columbia just celebrated their 100th birthday a few months ago.
