Republican National Convention Begins Monday

The Republican National Convention is set to kick off on Monday, just days after Joe Biden accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination, and will run through Thursday.

A small number of Republican leaders will be physically present in Charlotte, N.C., on Monday, but most of the convention will be virtual.

Originally, all four days of the convention were set to take place in Charlotte. But President Trump moved the majority of the convention events to Jacksonville, Fla., in June after a dispute with North Carolina’s governor about safety protocols related to the coronavirus. Then in July, following a significant spike in cases in the Sunshine State, Trump canceled the Jacksonville events.
