WASHINGTON -

 A Republican National Committee panel is about to choose between Dallas and Cleveland to host the Republican Party's 2016 presidential convention.
    
The Republicans' site selection committee was to meet Tuesday to review the two cities' bids. A recommendation could come as soon as Tuesday afternoon, and the full 168-member RNC is expected to ratify the choice next month.
    
Paying for the convention remained the top criterion for the 12-member site selection committee. The previous two GOP conventions have sapped party dollars during election years.
    
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has insisted the host city not leave the central party picking up the tab, which is expected to be around $60 million.
