CLEVELAND - The Republican National Convention is just 12 weeks away.

Wednesday, it was a day with the delegates.

Republican leaders from around the country were in Cleveland checking out their assigned hotels and scoping out facilities.

"I love Cleveland. Cleveland has been wonderful to us," said Enid Mickelson of Utah.

Mickelson is co-chair of the committee that selected Cleveland almost two years ago.

"We are well along in the planning process. Each of the state delegations have received their hotel assignments," said Mickelson.

Glenn McCall of South Carolina says his delegation mostly has questions about transportation and security.

"We want to make sure the venue will be secure. And make sure there will be security on the buses that will be transporting delegates into the coliseum area," said McCall.

Mickelson says she is not too concerned about any security issues during the RNC.

"It's these outside people we have to worry about. We've done our best to plan for that. I hope the people of Cleveland will report if something concerns them," said Mickelson.

Mickelson says planning the convention has been challenging due to the fact that there is no presumptive nominee at this point.

"Usually, that nominee would be involved in the planning process, like how do you want the stage to look or lighting and stuff like that. We can't go out to all three candidates and say what do you want, we have to make those decisions ourselves and go forward," said Mickelson.
