CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) --
North Carolina and Charlotte officials are passing up an effort to pursue
landing a second presidential nominating convention in a row.
Gov. Pat McCrory and Charlotte
Mayor Patrick Cannon say the Queen City won't submit a bid to host the
Republican National Convention in 2016. The city isn't ruling out a bid to host
the GOP convention in 2020.
Charlotte hosted the
Democratic National Convention in 2012. The event hasn't led to a rush of new
business for the city's convention center.
