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 issued a statement saying its committee members unanimously selected the city.
“I am delighted to announce Milwaukee as the host city for the 2024 Republican National Convention,” she said. “Milwaukee is a world-class city, and we are eager to see it shine in the spotlight in 2024. I look forward to hosting an incredible event for our party with members of the Republican National Committee, Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson, the Milwaukee Host Committee and Visit Milwaukee Congress of confidence and 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 to win the state since Ronald Reagan in 1984. But he lost the state to President Joe Biden in 2020.
