The Republican National Committee announced on Friday that the party’s 2020 presidential nominating convention will be held in Charlotte, NC, making it the second time the city will have hosted a national major political party convention. In 2012, Democrats gathered there to re-nominate President Barack Obama.
The Democratic National Committee has narrowed its convention site choice to three cities: Houston, Miami Beach, and Milwaukee. They have set the event schedule, however, and the convention will be held from July 13-16, 2020. A fourth city host finalist, Denver, saw its leadership withdraw when the calendar was announced because of scheduling conflicts relating to their convention facilities.
The Republican convention schedule has not yet been finalized, but it will come after the Democratic dates. The party holding the White House always hosts the later nominating convention.
