Las Vegas 2016?

What a week this is. Yesterday, we saw a row develop over a Republican US Senator using "salty language" to insult Nevada's Senior Senator. But today, some Republicans are declaring their "love for Nevada" with a campaign for Las Vegas to host the 2016 Republican National Convention.

Could the party of "family values" hold its next national convention in Sin City? 

Replete with a website and Twitter account, the state of Nevada launched a bid Tuesday for Las Vegas to serve as host of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

Jack St. Martin, executive director of the Nevada Host Committee, cited the area's diversity in making his case for Vegas.

“Las Vegas makes perfect sense for the GOP Convention,” St. Martin said in a statement, according to Politico. “Las Vegas knows how to host something of this magnitude and Nevada’s diverse demographics make total sense for the GOP to come here.”

Really? Really? The RNC in Las Vegas?

Will they repeat their message to Nevada homeowners from the 2012 cycle? Will they continue preaching their gospel of austerity? Will they highlight their health care solutions? And will they keep touting their climate & energy plan?

Sure, Las Vegas has plenty to offer national Republicans. But what do national Republicans have to offer Las Vegas and Nevada?

Think about it.
