STL not bidding for 2016 Dem convention

   The 2016 Democratic National Convention won't be held in St. Louis.  

   The Gateway City was one of about 30 cities to receive letters inviting them to compete to host the convention.  St. Louis officials plan to decline.  

   Mayor Slay's chief of staff Jeff Rainford tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the city is focused on the private fundraising efforts for the ongoing $380 million Gateway Arch grounds redo.  Rainford says its a really big project and must remain the focus for now.  

   He added that St. Louis might bid for the convention in 2020.

St. Louis to bid on 2016 Democratic Convention

It has been nearly 100 years since the city has hosted a Democratic National Convention, but St. Louis was one of about thirty cities to receive letters within the last week regarding interest in hosting the 2016 convention.
The city was considered a runner-up to host the 2012 convention, but lost out to Charlotte.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Brian Wahby, the former chairman of the city's Democratic Party who led the 2012 effort, confirmed to the paper that he is in Washington today to attend the Democratic National Committee's winter meeting. 
 Wahby's visit is part of an on-going effort to bring the convention to the Gateway City.  Among the other cities invited to submit bids are Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Seattle, and Tampa.
Across the state, Kansas City is aggressively seeking the 2016 Republican National Convention.
