CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A North Carolina delegate wants to see the Republican National Committee hold a full convention.
The state is faced with an ultimatum; open up Charlotte for the RNC or risk losing, what was expected to be, the largest tourism event in the city’s history.
North Carolina delegate Ada Fisher joins the president, calling for an in-person convention.
Fisher is part of the RNC committee on arrangements.
She wants to see some of the attendance reduced, such as removing alternate delegates and some visitors.
But even with a scaled-down convention, she doesn’t see social distancing within convention spaces as a realistic goal.
“If we choose to come, we understand the risk factors,” Fisher says. “You choose to come then you take your risks.”
It will be up to Gov. Roy Cooper and the state Department of Health and Human Services to decide whether Charlotte will host a full convention.
