Milwaukee Is Now RNC Frontrunner

There’s a report that Milwaukee is now the frontrunner to host the 2024 Republican National Convention.

The website Politico reports that as part of the site selection process, RNC leaders toured the city on Thursday with former Republican Governor Scott Walker.

According to a person familiar with situation, local donors have pledged 30 million dollars in support of Milwaukee’s bid. Politico reports the group was also impressed by acting Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson, a Democrat who’s been making a hard pitch for the city.

The other three finalists to host the convention are Nashville – where RNC officials will visit next week – along with Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City. Like Milwaukee, all are Democratic strongholds.
