Democratic Governor Roy Cooper Refused To Communicate Social Distancing Guidelines Despite Positive Data
Gainesville, Fla. (PPD) — The 2020 Republican National Convention (RNC) has been relocated to Jacksonville, Florida, Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel confirmed Thursday. The decision to change the host city from Charlotte, North Carolina, came after Democratic Governor Roy Cooper refused to end strict social distancing guidelines.
“We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion in the great city of Jacksonville,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “Not only does Florida hold a special place in President Trump’s heart as his home state, but it is crucial in the path to victory in 2020.”
“We look forward to bringing this great celebration and economic boon to the Sunshine State in just a few short months.”
Governor Ron DeSantis and Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry welcomed the celebration to re-nominate President Donald J. Trump with open arms. In Florida, 64 of 67 counties entered Phase One on May 4.
“Florida is honored to host this special event where we will celebrate the re-nomination of President Donald J. Trump,” said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. “Jacksonville is a great city that will showcase Florida’s energy, facilities, entrepreneurship and commitment to bring together the delegates of the Republican Party at a historic time in our nation’s history.”
As People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) has previously reported, the data don’t warrant extending lockdowns, if ever. Lockdowns designed to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) most failed to “alter the course of the pandemic,” according to a statistical analysis by JPMorgan Chase.
“Unlike rigorous testing of potential new drugs, lockdowns were administered with little consideration that they might not only cause economic devastation but potentially more deaths than COVID-19 itself,” stated Marko Kolanovic, a quantitative strategist at JPMorgan Chase.
“Today’s announcement is a huge win for the City of Jacksonville to host the celebration of President Trump’s acceptance of the nomination,” said City of Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry. “The opportunity to highlight all our city has to offer and the tremendous economic impact is one I enthusiastically welcome, and we look forward to hosting an exciting event for all delegates and guests to enjoy.”
The 2020 Republican National Convention will take place at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena. The RNC said more details will be released in the coming weeks.
