Aide: Chicago Not Interested In 2008 RNC
(AP) CHICAGO Thanks but no thanks.
That's Chicago's answer to an invitation to submit a bid to host the 2008 Republican National Convention.
The Republican National Committee said yesterday that Chicago and 30 other cities were selected to submit bids explaining why they'd be a good choice to host the 2008 convention.
But a spokeswoman for Mayor Richard Daley says City Hall isn't interested.
Jackie Heard says city officials are more focused on whether to pursue a campaign to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Chicago hosted the Democratic National Convention in 1996.
