It isn’t even clear if Dallas is on the RNC’s shortlist of convention sites now that North Carolina has lost it but Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins wants to make his opinion known – he’s a firm no on the city hosting it. Jenkins cites his concern for the potential of a large gathering spreading the coronavirus.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, also a Democrat, has not extended an invitation to the RNC to host the convention in that city, though the city bid on hosting the 2016 convention. But even if he did, Jenkins says he’s a hard no:

Dallas will never do. Still under the shadow of a very bad day in November 1963.

What a POS this Jenkins is.

He’s okay with rioters/protester gatherings, but not anything to do with MAGA.

Got it.

Dallas is as lost as Austin, now....maybe even more so.

But if you want to protest for black lives matter tens of thousands can be crammed together and it’s okay. This is out of control and it all needs to stop.

I’m sick of typing and I have my own bottle on Staten island to fight right now. We should all be fighting any battles that are near us

What gives this judge the right to make edicts like this?

Trump owns Texas, there is no reason to hold the convention there.

He won NC by 3% and FL by 1%, so it makes political sense to move the convention to FL.

“Dallas will never do. Still under the shadow of a very bad day in November 1963.”

Bull. They’ve already had an RNC convention there in the ‘80s.

At this point the convention would most safely be held on an army base. Or maybe a remote Alaskan island.

Right and Jacksonville Florida can forget about it also after their RINO mayor had the Confederate statue taken down in the middle of the night that had been there since 1890’s.
