Pence confirms RNC could be relocated

United States Vice President Mike Pence joined President Donald Trump on Monday in threatening to relocate the Republican National Convention.

"It’s an issue we’ve been talking about because these national conventions literally take many months to organize and prepare and there are, there are states around the country, we think of Texas, we think of Florida, Georgia, the last two states I visited last week that have made tremendous progress on reopening their communities and reopening their economies," Pence told Fox News shortly after Trump floated the idea on Twitter.

The RNC is scheduled to take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, on August 24. However, Governor Roy Cooper still hasn't eased coronavirus restrictions in North Carolina.
