RNC: “Full Steam Ahead” With Traditional Convention

The Washington Examiner reports:

The Republican National Committee has no plans to scale down the August convention to renominate President Trump, according to Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

McDaniel said the RNC is confident that a four-day convention set to begin Aug. 24 in Charlotte, North Carolina, and draw thousands from across the country would not be interrupted. “We are full steam ahead,” she said in a telephone interview Friday. “We’re ready to go.”

The Democratic Party decided to postpone its mid-July Milwaukee convention to nominate former Vice President Joe Biden until Aug. 17. Biden said in a recent interview that he may have no choice but to accept the Democratic nomination virtually.
