RNC move to Jacksonville ‘devastating’


June 12. The Charlotte 2020 Host Committee is officially acknowledging that the RNC is Florida-bound after just one day in Charlotte for a business meeting. The Host Committee made this statement:

“Confirmation by the city of Jacksonville that the Republican National Convention has moved is devastating news for the thousands of people who live in our community and work at our hotels, entertainment venues and small businesses expecting a boost from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our good faith efforts to carry out our obligations under agreements made two years ago have been met with broken promises and disregard of the significant commitment from many partners across our region. We need to stop pretending there’s any part of the convention that will remain in Charlotte. Unfortunately, the convention has moved to Jacksonville due to decisions beyond our control.”
