Yabbut everybody knows people don't go to conventions to do business. They go to party and get laid. And if the sex workers prefer social distancing to coming in contact with old fat MAGAts and their junk, why bother even making the trip?
Again, these are Republicans, the party of conservative "family values" ... none would ever engage in such behavior*.

*Okay, Mike Pence would never engage in that behavior because "Mother" would never allow it.

Alarming buzz about them wanting to do it in Miami -- in Hurricane Season and still not in Phase One. Please no to that!

Couldn't they do it in an NFL stadium somewhere?
NFL would be in preseason, so it would have to be in one whose team is away that week. Vegas and Atlanta would be out, they have home games Thursday and Friday, 27th and 28th.

They wouldn't use a stadium. They wouldn't be able to fill it without a craiglist posting for a paid gig job or else there would be bad optics. They need an indoor arena for their "show"

Usually they want to have these things in a swing state, so Georgia or Texas might actually work this time.

Axios: RNC expands convention search across the Sun Belt

The Republican National Committee is planning site visits over the next 10 days to more than a half-dozen cities — across the South and into Texas and Arizona — as it scrambles for a new convention host, people familiar with the internal discussions tell Axios.

Driving the news: The RNC's executive committee voted Wednesday night to allow most of the convention to move — with only a smaller, official portion remaining in Charlotte — after North Carolina's governor said the coronavirus pandemic would mean a scaled-back event with social distancing and face coverings.

The cities under consideration include Jacksonville, Phoenix, Dallas, Nashville, Atlanta and possibly New Orleans and Savannah.

Thankfully Miami seems to be falling off the radar, Jacksonville is in contention. Maybe things are better enough up there that they can handle it... but South Florida would be a disaster between the pandemic and the huge protests this convention is going to bring.

The GOP really boxed themselves in here... there are 81 days until August 24, the start of the RNC. Get those airline tickets and hotel rooms going soon kids. Right now, it's a ticket to nowhere.

Don't tell me that Trump has made things worse yet again. :swoon:

Latoya has already cancelled Jazzfest and French Quarter fest and Essence fest and the hundreds of smaller festivals through the end of the year and they think she's going to allow the RNC to come down there? Fat fucking chance.

Saw a Facebook post that said the NC state legislature is going to try a bill to authorize exactly what Psychobozo wants.

But we ended the supermajority in 2018. Cooper can veto it and the veto will stand. :smoking:

Much like NC, I think the Governor of Illinois would have to give approval/waivers over restrictions on crowding tens of thousands of people in one place. I don't think JB Pritzker would be too amenable to that either.

WASHINGTON — As Republicans scramble to reboot the GOP convention, one option gaining traction is a multistate affair with major speeches and rallies in a variety of cities, according to three people familiar with the discussions.

Part of the appeal of the roadshow approach is that it could allow President Donald Trump to claim having commanded the highest-attended convention audience in history, they said, and to accept his renomination with all the fanfare he envisioned.

"I think it's going to be a glorified rally," a person familiar with the conversations said of the president's keynote address.

Speaking of Savannah, the Republican convention will make Sherman's March to the Sea an afternoon stroll in the park.
