The Republican National Committee officially announced their plans to hold the 2020 GOP Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina Friday; saying the city has “so much to offer” Republican delegates as they set their sights on President Trump’s re-election.
“I am thrilled to announce Charlotte as the official host city for the 2020 Republican National Convention,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “We look forward to seeing the Queen City take center stage as the Republican Party re-nominates President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to continue fighting for the American people.”
“Charlotte has so much to offer, and we are excited to bring delegates to a city that has demonstrated its southern hospitality, showcased its vibrant energy, and proven that possibilities are endless,” RNC Site Selection Chairman Ron Kaufman said.
Inside sources say the RNC had narrowed the potential locations down to Charlotte and Las Vegas, but feared Sin City’s reputation for gambling and other vices could alienate Republican voters.
