(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) Kansas City hosted delegates from the Republican National Committee as they fight to host the 2016 GOP Convention.

The committee visited different sites around the city including the Sprint Center, the Power and Light District and the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.

"You don't have to sell me on Kansas City. I'm a huge fan of Kansas City," said Chairman for Republican National Committee Reince Priebus. "For me, it's the west and the midwest all bundled up into one nice gem."

Cleveland, Dallas and Denver are the other three finalists in the running to host the convention.

The estimated economic impact is around $425 million.

Kansas City last hosted the RNC in 1976.

A winner is expected to be announced during the next RNC meeting in August.
