CLEVELAND - Cleveland continues to prepare as the Republican National Convention is quickly approaching.

In just about 6 months thousands of people will be flooding into Cleveland for the political event.

Planners say they are on track to have everything completed by July, thanks to Mother Nature.

"We got a real bonus the past couple of months with the weather," said one planner.

About 50,000 people are expected to come to Cleveland throughout the week of the convention.
