Las Vegas will not be hosting the 2020 Republican National Convention.
Charlotte, North Carolina appears to have won the bidding to host the event that’s expected to re-nominate Donald Trump for a second term as president.
Las Vegas has never before hosted a political convention, but this year’s bid was pushed by Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority declined to make a formal bid to the convention due to space issues.
The Republican National Committee wanted the convention venue to be empty for as long as six weeks before the big event.
In Las Vegas, the nation’s convention capital – such a request was not possible.
