RNC Considers Replacement Convention Locations: Nashville, Las Vegas, Orlando, Jacksonville, Georgia

The New York Times reports:

The Republican National Committee is actively looking at alternative sites for its nominating convention in August, amid a high-stakes public feud with Democratic officials in Charlotte, N.C., the long-planned host city. Officials are planning to visit Nashville this week. Other cities under consideration, according to a Republican official familiar with the plans, are Las Vegas, Orlando, Jacksonville and sites in Georgia.

On Tuesday, Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the R.N.C., escalated an ongoing feud with North Carolina officials over how to hold the nominating convention, putting the state on notice that there was a strong possibility of moving the event. “We have an obligation to our delegates and nominee to begin visiting the multiple cities and states who have reached out in recent days about hosting an historic event to show that America is open for business,” Ms. McDaniel wrote in a letter to Mr. Cooper.
