Democrats are trying to decide where to hold their 2016 presidential nominating convention.
Indianapolis is one of over 15 other cities that are in the running to host the festivities.
Many factors play into the decision including whether or not the city has the facilities to actually host an event of this size.
The cities under consideration are Atlanta; Chicago; Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Miami; Nashville; New York; Orlando; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City.
Chicago has a bit of an edge in the early betting because it is the hometown of both current president Barack Obama and presidential wanna-be and former first lady Hillary Clinton. A decision is not expected the end of this year or early next year.
Most cities expect the convention to cost between $55 million and $60 million. Some of the 2016 cities have obvious appeal for Democrats. Republicans are also considering Las Vegas and Cleveland. Denver, Dallas, Kansas City, Mo., and Cincinnati also remain on the Republican National Committee's list of potential hosts.
Indianapolis Mayor Gregg Ballard says that Indianapolis won’t submit a bid for either convention because the capitol city already has too many events booked.
