Charlotte now has an even stronger chance of hosting the 2020 Republican National Convention after a Texas city was removed from the running.
Sources told WBTV this past Tuesday evening that members of the 2020 RNC site selection committee had whittled their decision down to just two potential host cities – Charlotte and Las Vegas.
The decision came just 2 weeks after the committee visited many of Charlotte’s top attractions and met with city leaders to discuss why Charlotte would be the best fit.
The City of Charlotte officially submitted their bid to host the 2020 Republican National Convention 2 months ago.
“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.
