Trump Renomination to be Private       08/02 10:41

   The vote to renominate President Donald Trump is set to be conducted in 
private later this month, without members of the press present, a spokeswoman 
for the Republican National Convention said, citing the coronavirus.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The vote to renominate President Donald Trump is set to 
be conducted in private later this month, without members of the press present, 
a spokeswoman for the Republican National Convention said, citing the 
coronavirus.

   While Trump called off the public components of the convention in Florida 
last month, citing spiking cases of the virus across the country, 336 delegates 
are scheduled to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Aug. 24 to formally 
vote to make Trump the GOP standard-bearer once more.

   Nominating conventions are traditionally meant to be media bonanzas, as 
political parties seek to leverage the attention the events draw to spread 
their message to as many voters as possible. If the GOP decision stands, it 
will be the first party nominating convention in modern history to be closed to 
reporters.

   "Given the health restrictions and limitations in place within the state of 
North Carolina, we are planning for the Charlotte activities to be closed press 
Friday, August 21 -- Monday, August 24," a convention spokeswoman said. "We are 
happy to let you know if this changes, but we are working within the parameters 
set before us by state and local guidelines regarding the number of people who 
can attend events."

   The decision was first reported by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

   Privately some GOP delegations have raised logistical issues with traveling 
to either city, citing the increasing number of jurisdictions imposing 
mandatory quarantine orders on travelers returning from states experiencing 
surges in the virus.

   The subset of delegates in Charlotte will be casting proxy votes on behalf 
of the more than 2,500 official delegates to the convention. Alternate 
delegates and guests have already been prohibited.
