Opposition Grows For 2024 GOP Convention

A coalition of community and labor groups is calling on Wisconsinites to oppose Milwaukee hosting the 2024 Republican National Convention. Mayor Cavalier Johnson says it’s a business decision.

“Just because the city of Milwaukee would play host to the Republican National Convention, doesn’t mean individuals, elected or not, are signing up for the platform of the Republican Party.”

An open letter from Voces de la Frontera Action, SEIU of Wisconsin and other organizations states that the Republican Party “ . . . supports White Supremacists, the violent attempted coup at the US Capitol . . and continues to engineer new ways to undermine fair and democratic elections.”

A Milwaukee Common Council Committee is scheduled to vote Wednesday on the RNC’s contract.
