The dates are now set for a visit to Birmingham from leaders of the Democratic Party.
They will be in Birmingham July 21 and 22, surveying the city to see if it is a suitable site for the 2016 Democratic National Convention. An announcement is expected later this year or in early 2015.
Other cities being considered are New York, Cleveland, Columbus, Philadelphia and Phoenix. An expert recently told Fox6 that he expects Cleveland to be chosen as host, due to its status as a swing state.
