Charlotte Emerges As Finalist in 2020 RNC Bid, and The Only Finalist City That Wants It


The City of Charlotte has just been named as the top finalist city to host the Republican National Convention in 2020.

N.C. GOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse, the leader of NC’s Republican Party, told sources that the RNC selection committee has decided that Charlotte, Las Vegas, and San Antonio are the finalist host cities.

The committee told him at the RNC’s recent the spring meeting in Miami that seven cities had been whittled down to these 3 strong contender cities.

Charlotte, however, seems to be the only one of the finalist cities that seems to have any interest in hosting the event.

The City of Charlotte officially submitted their bid to host the 2020 Republican National Convention earlier last month.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the support and assistance of our many City of Charlotte partners, hotels, venues and others who helped to craft this thorough response on behalf of our region,” commented CRVA CEO Tom Murray.

The convention would be a huge economic boost for our city, considering that the Democratic National Convention that we hosted in 2012 had an estimated economic impact of over $163 million.
