CHARLOTTE – Get your MAGA gear order in, if that’s your cup of tea, because the dates for the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte have been set.

The Republican National Committee has announced the dates for the 2020 Convention that takes place in Charlotte for August 24-27, 2020.

NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes issued the following statement:

First and foremost, we must continue to express our gratitude and appreciate to Mayor Vi Lyles and the City of Charlotte for their hard work in this process,” stated Hayes. “Taking place from August 24-27, we look forward to working with the RNC, Charlotte officials, and the respective campaigns from the state and country to make the Convention a resounding success.”

While all eyes are on 2018 at the moment, 2020 will be a much bigger deal for obvious reasons. Trump’s re-election bid is certain to draw the worst out of the Leftist crazies, and there are plenty of those in the Queen City.

The gubernatorial contest will be a huge focus as well as Democrat Roy Cooper will do his best to create an illusion of leadership.

On the Republican side there could still be a fight for the nomination leading into that summer. Former Gov. Pat McCrory and U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (RINO) are on politicos’ short list of possible contenders, as well as Lt. Gov. Dan Forest.

Forest is the only one to make explicit his intention of running, and he’d be the only real conservative in the race to represent the NCGOP in the mansion Blount Street (Constitution Party of NC candidates notwithstanding).

It is certain to be an eventful time in Charlotte, then, come August of 2020.
