GOP CANCELS Charlotte Convention | Headline Health Predicts Host City

The Republican National Committee has announced it will move the 2020 convention to a new city.

Details below, along with our prediction of which city gets the nod. 

Axios – The Republican National Committee is scrambling for a new convention host city after President Trump said Tuesday that North Carolina’s coronavirus restrictions will make Charlotte unworkable for the crowds he’s counting on.

Driving the news: The organization still hopes to conduct the convention’s “official business” in Charlotte, an RNC spokesperson said.

Our prediction: GOP convention will be held in this Florida city 

  • It has a professional sports arena as well as a convention center

  • It is in a key battleground state
  • It has a Republican governor
  • It’s an easy drive from Mar a Lago
  • It’s on the short list of cities reported by Axios.

Our prediction (even before seeing the GOP’s ‘short list’) – the 2020 Republican National Convention will be held in Orlando, Florida.
