RNC Votes to Hold "Business Portion" of Convention in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Republican National Convention voted Wednesday night to allow official convention business to take place in Charlotte, according to NBC News. 

The city reported a few days ago that the RNC intended to keep portions of the convention in Charlotte but the executive committee also approved a plan that would only send 336 delegates to North Carolina, far fewer than anticipated.

Additionally, the RNC has voted to keep the party platform the same as it was in 2016.

According to reports, there is still no official decision on where the celebration portion of the convention will be held but the leading contender is Jacksonville, Florida.

“The RNC’s Executive Committee has unanimously approved procedures that allow for official convention business to continue in Charlotte. Many cities are eager to host the president’s acceptance of the nomination, and talks are continuing with several of them to host that celebration. A final decision will be made soon,” an RNC spokesperson told NBC News.
