Milwaukee One Step Closer To Hosting 2024 Republican Convention

Milwaukee takes another step towards hosting the 2024 Republican National Convention.

The Common Council passed the framework for a contract with the Republican National Committee on Wednesday, which was quickly signed by mayor Cavalier Johnson.

A Common Council committee had tabled the contract after progressive groups raised concerns about Republican policy positions.

Milwaukee and Nashville are competing to host the convention. Convention organizers have said they want to make a final decision by mid-June.

According to estimates, the 2024 R-N-C might bring as 200-million dollars to the city.
