Newport Will Not Be Host to 34th America’s Cup

Rhode Island has lost its bid to bring the next America's Cup, back to Newport.

BMW Oracle Racing has announced that San Francisco is the only American city in the running. Keith Stokes, however, says there is still some hope left for Newport. The city is still in the running to host a series of trial races, as soon as next year.

ABC6 will be talking to Keith Stokes, the head of the Rhode Island Economic Development Commission, on ABC6 First at Four.
