North Carolina governor tells RNC 'very unlikely' they can host full convention as planned

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper on Tuesday told the Republican National Committee that it is “very unlikely” they can host a full convention in Charlotte as planned amid the coronavirus crisis, while still leaving the door open to hosting the nominating event in the state.

In a letter to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and convention president and CEO Marcia Lee Kelly, Cooper said that the state still wants “a safe RNC convention in Charlotte” that follows health guidelines, but that officials would like to discuss what a “scaled-down convention would look like.”

“The people of North Carolina do not know what the status of COVID-19 will be in August, so planning for a scaled-down convention, with fewer people, social distancing and face coverings is a necessity,” Cooper wrote. “We are happy to continue talking with you about what a scaled-down convention would look like and we still await your proposed plan for that.”

Yeah, everybody standing six feet apart wearing masks at a political nominating convention. Man what fun that would be.

In AUGUST!

Man they don’t want to give up that virus do they?

Yes, do it. Have an extended, huge convention, elsewhere. Big money lost for NC.

A bunch of NC cops *took a knee* to support the rioters.

We need to be done with NC.

Miami Beach is good. Plenty of room for a convention, lots of available accommodations, and relatively easy to keep intruders out, as the location is isolated from the mainland by a couple causeways across a channel, keeping protesters at arms’ length.

And Florida is a more friendly venue.

“North Carolina has changed so much... Raleigh is a perfect example. Take look at thePolice Chief there.”

You have a Northeastern Progressive Tapeworm infection. One of the first indications is that they try to act Southern as in saying ‘I’ve always felt Southern’. It’s a modern carpetbagger infestation.

FL is too HOT and humid. No normal person lives in FL in the middle,of summer. Free states like Idaho and Montana are better options.

"..“a safe RNC convention in Charlotte” that follows health guidelines, but that officials would like to discuss what a “scaled-down convention would look like.”"

Automatic body temperature checks at each entrance.

Followed by an antiviral/disinfectant shower.

A sixty foot infrared sterilization chamber walkthrough to dry off after shower.

All participants then receive President Trump/VP Pence 2020 n95 face mask.

Absolutely. Shine a bright light on the great job DeSantis is doing. Would be easy to draw a clear, contrasting distinction between a Rat infested sewer and a state run by a governor who cares for his people and makes good, sound decisions. DeSantis is a future President IMHO.
