New York officials are hoping to bring the 2016 Democratic Convention to Brooklyn. 

City and state officials are continuing their presentation today, outlining the benefits that New York has to offer.

“There is no place that says the American dream burns brightly better than Brooklyn,” Senator Chuck Schumer said.

Schumer led the effort to entice DNC officials to choose New York, saying the Big Apple can accommodate such a large event.

“We have more hotel space than any other city and more hotel space close to a convention center than any other city,” he said.

Philadelphia and Columbus are also believed to be in the running.  Some think they may be the frontrunners, since Pennsylvania and Ohio are considered swing states.
