RNC host committee declares convention a success


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minneapolis-St. Paul host committee for the Republican National Convention says the week has been a success.

The committee says the amount of media exposure the Twin Cities received by hosting the convention is equivalent to a $330 million advertising campaign.

Host committee CEO Jeff Larson says another way to put it is 122 Super Bowl ads.
