Trump won't be in Charlotte, but RNC may still hold events

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Republican National Committee unveiled plans on Wednesday to proceed with certain convention activities in Charlotte, even though President Donald Trump will deliver his nomination acceptance speech somewhere else.

The move comes in response to growing concerns from Gov. Roy Cooper, D-N.C., that the full capacity convention Trump had requested is “very unlikely” to happen in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cooper wants the GOP to continue discussing a scaled-back convention, while Republicans are seeking assurances that more than 10 people will be allowed in a ROOM.

**SNIP**

The RNC and city of Charlotte signed a contract that went into effect in July 2018. Both sides are working to make sure the other holds up their end of the bargain.

**SNIP**

“Absent a breach of the contract by one of the parties, the expectation is that the parties will perform as scheduled under the contract," Baker said. "We would expect that since we haven’t breached the contract, and I’m not aware that any of the other parties have, that the RNC would fulfill their obligations under the contract.”

This is absurd. Trump won’t attend his own convention?

They are crazy to have this in a democrat area, the rules of the game have changed. The riots at the convention will make the current events look like child’s play. And the local government will take a hands off approach, let it burn. They need to have it somewhere where the local government will enforce the law.

“Due to the directive from the governor that our convention cannot go on as planned as required by our rules, the celebration of the president’s acceptance of the Republican nomination will be held in another city,” the RNC said in a statement. “Should the governor allow more than 10 people in a room, we still hope to conduct the official business of the convention in Charlotte.”

Dory MacMillan, a spokeswoman for Cooper, said in a statement that the governor “has been clear that the convention could be held with more than 10 people but that plans need to be in place for a scaled down convention with safety precautions. The state has asked for a plan from the RNC but instead has received a public demand for a guarantee of a full indoor convention without social distancing or protective measures.”

Switch the convention to Florida and work with our great conservative and Trumper, Governor DiSantis!

It's a swing state leaning GOP and with a large electoral college vote.

Countless big and small business owners in Florida will be ecstatic and grateful. The weather will be great, and the folks will be friendly.

Y'all come down!

You broke the contract long ago. In every single way.
Buh bye. And see you in court.

I have a number of relatives in NC. Several of them have mentioned that they can’t WAIT to try and vote the current governor out.

Isn’t Ronna McDaniel Romney’s niece?
She may not have the intestinal fortitude for a real fight.

ANOTHER reason why i told the RNC to go pound sand. Ever talk to one of those idiots trying to bilk you for money? They’re dumber than dog poop. Remind me of Slow Joe.
