RNC lays out plan for limited convention as Florida COVID cases spike

Republicans will curtail attendance and shift to a mix of indoor and outdoor venues as they try to balance President Trump’s demands for a large-scale convention while working within constraints imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told members Thursday that the new outline reflected Florida’s and Jacksonville’s public health guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Programming is being scheduled for throughout the day and night from Aug. 24-27 along a multiblock radius of Jacksonville, including the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, TIAA Bank Field, Daily’s Place amphitheater, 121 Financial Ballpark, and several others, McDaniel wrote in an email obtained by the Washington Examiner.

“I want to make clear that we still intend to host a fantastic convention celebration in Jacksonville,” McDaniel said. “We can gather and put on a top-notch event that celebrates the incredible accomplishments of President Trump’s administration and his re-nomination for a second term — while also doing so in a safe and responsible manner.”
