(Washington) -- The Democratic National Committee has asked Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and 13 other cities to make a pitch to host the presidential nominating convention in 2016.
The DNC says the party will accept proposals through June 6th and will pick a host city either late this year or early in 2015.
In addition to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, the cities under consideration include: Atlanta; Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Miami; Nashville; Orlando; Phoenix; New York City; Chicago and Salt Lake City.
Some cities seem more likely than others.
For instance, President Obama, who will be leaving the White House in 2017, calls Chicago home and his potential successor Hillary Rodham Clinton is from Illinois.
Clinton also represented New York in the Senate.
