COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The host committee hoping to land the 2016 Democratic National Convention for Columbus has extended its efforts to social media.

A website called “Bring it Columbus” provides links for people to share their excitement for Columbus with key figures in the decision-making process. Ohio’s capital is competing against Philadelphia and the New York borough of Brooklyn for the chance to host the presidential nominating event.

Republicans have selected Cleveland for their convention.

Cheerleaders for Columbus can send Twitter messages through the “Bring It” website or hashtag to Democratic National Committee members and other influencers of the process. Those include President Barack Obama, along with former President Bill Clinton and wife Hillary Rodham Clinton, the leading Democratic presidential contender should she seek the White House again.
