The Republican National Committee has announced it will host its 2024 convention in Milwaukee as the party hopes to retake Wisconsin in that year’s presidential election.
The RNC released a statement saying its committee members chose the city unanimously.
“I am thrilled to announce Milwaukee as the host city for the 2024 Republican National Convention,” she said. “Milwaukee is a world-class city, and we look forward to seeing it shine in the spotlight in 2024. I look forward to working with members of the Republican National Committee, Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson, the Milwaukee Hospitality Commission and Visit Milwaukee to deliver a incredible convention for our Party and to nominate the next President of the United States.”
Former President Donald Trump shocked many when he won Wisconsin in 2016, making him the first Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan in 1984 to win the state. But he lost the state in 2020 to President Joe Biden.
