One Florida city has offered to host this year’s Republican National Convention. Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry recently announced his city is ready to host the event if it needs a new location.

The convention is currently scheduled to take place in North Carolina over the summer.

However, the president has threatened to change those plans if the state’s governor can’t assure him the event can happen due to the pandemic.

“This appears to be a long shot. I don’t know how real this is, but anytime something’s in play, Jacksonville is open for business. Specifically, I and the governor have said Florida’s open for business in a safe, responsible way. So, I thought it was appropriate that I respond today. The short answer is, if the opportunity presents itself, yes.” – Lenny Curry, Mayor of Jacksonville, Florida

President Trump has given North Carolina’s governor a week to confirm whether the convention can take place in that state.
