WASHINGTON -- The vote to renominate President Donald Trump is set to be
conducted in private later this month, without members of the press present, a
spokeswoman for the Republican National Convention, citing the coronavirus.

While Trump called off the public components of the convention in Florida last
month, citing spiking cases of the virus across the country, 336 delegates are
scheduled to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Aug. 24 to formally vote to
make Trump the GOP standard-bearer once more.

Nominating conventions are traditionally meant to be media bonanzas, as
political parties seek to leverage the attention the events draw to spread their
message to as many voters as possible. If the GOP decision stands, it will mark
the first party nominating convention in modern history to be closed to
reporters.

“Given the health restrictions and limitations in place within the state of
North Carolina, we are planning for the Charlotte activities to be closed press
Friday, August 21 – Monday, August 24,” a convention spokeswoman said. “We are
happy to let you know if this changes, but we are working within the parameters
set before us by state and local guidelines regarding the number of people who
can attend events."

Privately some GOP delegations have raised logistical issues with traveling to
either city, citing the increasing number of jurisdictions imposing mandatory
quarantine orders on travelers returning from states experiencing surges in the
virus.

The subset of delegates in Charlotte will be casting proxy votes on behalf of
the more than 2,500 official delegates to the convention. Alternate delegates
and guests have already been prohibited.

So...you'll never be invited. Admission requires giving the Republican secret
handshake at the door.

...which prolly has some weird sexual connotation to it!

So NC gets the honor of playing host to a bunch of Republican anti-mask
freaks.

He's still on track to lose the state and badly ("A+" rated Marist/NBC
poll has him down there 44/51 as of July 27).
