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.
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.
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 havent breached the contract, and Im not aware that any of the other parties have, that the RNC would fulfill their obligations under the contract.

HOW STUPID CAN THE RNC BE??? Oh....VERY STUPID!!! GET OUT OF CHARLOTTE you DOLTS!
NOT ONE person isn’t going to vote for Trump because you have MOVED to another city!!
This is to divide an conquer Antifa because they will most likely try to cause trouble at the RNC convention.
Sure, give in to the Democrats once again. Take a knee you morons.
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 presidents 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.
Do you think ANYONE on our side other than Trump would think of that??
That makes no sense. It will occur during the convention
After this election I’m dumping the republican party
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.
RNC is a phuking joke.
Do these people THINK?
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? Theyre dumber than dog poop. Remind me of Slow Joe.
From their mouths to God’s ears.
