The 2020 Republican National Convention will be an event in which delegates of the United States Republican Party will choose the party's nominees for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The convention will be held from August 24 to 27, 2020,[1] at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. By tradition, because Republicans currently hold the White House, their convention will be held after the 2020 Democratic National Convention, which is scheduled for July 13–16.[2]

Background

Site selection

Las Vegas, Nevada and Charlotte, North Carolina were mentioned as possible destinations for the 2020 RNC due to their locations in "swing states." Neither had ever hosted a Republican National Convention, although Charlotte had hosted a Democratic National Convention (in 2012). A Charlotte television station, WBTV, reported that Charlotte, Las Vegas and "another unnamed city in Texas, which sources at the meeting said were likely either Dallas or San Antonio," were finalists to host the convention.[3] Other sources named Dallas, Texas[4] and New York City, New York[5] as prospective hosts, while Las Vegas, Nevada,[6][7] Nashville, Tennessee,[8] Philadelphia, Pennsylvania[7] and San Antonio, Texas[4][7] had been under consideration earlier. However, Charlotte was the only city in the country to officially submit a bid for the convention.[9] On July 18, 2018, the RNC Site Selection Committee voted unanimously to recommend holding the convention in Charlotte.[10] The Republican National Committee made the selection official on July 20.[11]

The platform

Prior to the business of nominating a presidential ticket, the delegates would approve a manifesto called a "platform." Sections within this "platform" are known as "planks."[citation needed]

In the past the wording of these planks have been extremely contentious,[according to whom?] although platforms are very seldom read by the voting public.[citation needed]

Candidate

In January 2019, the Republican National Committee voted unanimously[12] to informally endorse the following candidate:

Since that time, former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld has declared himself as a challenger to President Trump.[13]

Delegate selection

The Republican Party, depending on the state or territory, chooses its delegates via either primary or caucus.[citation needed]

Nomination procedure

According to rules agreed to in July 2016, "a candidate has to win a majority of the vote in eight states to have his or her name placed into nomination at the convention."[14]

There will then be a ceremonial roll-call of the states.[citation needed]

The Vice presidential candidate is designated by the nominee and is nominated by acclamation. There hasn't been a roll call for Vice president since 1984.[citation needed]

Notes
