The Republicans' summer meeting is happening now in Chicago. On Friday, the committee is expected to formally accept Cleveland as the host for the RNC in 2016.

Back in July, Cleveland was selected by the Republican Site Selection Committee, beating Dallas for the host site. The Republican National Committee must now approve Cleveland to make it official.

No city has ever been recommended and not voted to proceed.

A signing ceremony will take place after the vote.
