Republican consultant says Detroit could host 2016 GOP convention

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit is not exactly a hotbed for Republicans, but one political consultant says the city could be a great spot to hold the 2016 Republican national convention.

In the coming edition of "Time" magazine, Republican consultant Mike Murphy predicts the Motor City will be a comeback story and "it will be done on GOP principles."  Detroit hosted the Republican convention in 1980 when Ronald Reagan received the party's presidential nomination.

Murphy also wants to see a regional primary with voters going to the polls the same day in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.
