2020 Republican National Convention to Livestream Aug. 24 Presidential Nomination in Charlotte, NC

Given the health restrictions in place within the state, the Congressional Press Galleries are working to identify a limited group to provide in-person coverage for Monday’s formal nomination

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Today the 2020 Republican National Convention’s Committee on Arrangements (COA) announced plans to livestream the formal nomination of President Donald J. Trump on Monday, August 24, 2020. Monday’s convention proceedings will be attended by six delegates from each state and territory, amounting to 336 delegates total, as decided by Rule 37(e).

Given the flexibility indicated by the N.C. Governor’s team upon receiving the RNC 2020 Health Protocol Plan, the COA has worked with the Congressional Press Galleries who will select a limited group of reporters to cover Monday’s formal nomination. However, given the in-person capacity limitations by the state of North Carolina due to COVID-19, the group will be small as to meet capacity and social-distancing restrictions in place.

For television broadcast, the COA is working with the major news networks and C-SPAN to provide the primary TV coverage for Monday’s event. The livestream is also available for broadcast purposes for news media entities upon request. More details provided below.
