CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte-area Republican leaders are putting Governor Roy Cooper on the clock to make a decision on this summer's Republican National Convention.
During a press conference at Spectrum Center in uptown Charlotte Tuesday, U.S. representatives, RNC officials and other GOP leaders said Cooper has until Wednesday to tell them whether they can host the RNC in full.
They said they weren't speaking as Republicans or Democrats, but as people who are concerned about the business owners, workers and others in the community who stand to lose out on the potential millions of dollars in revenue from the convention.
The RNC says it remains committed to Charlotte and isn't considering any venues besides Spectrum Center at this time.
