JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Republican Party officials are looking closely at Jacksonville, Fla., as they scramble to find a new location to host portions of this summer’s Republican National Convention, though there’s no final decision yet.
Multiple GOP officials confirmed to Fox News that the northern Florida city is considered “a strong contender.”
Florida GOP Chairman Joe Gruters took to Twitter on Wednesday to highlight that, “While no final decision has been made by the RNC we understand Jacksonville is a front runner. This certainly has been generating a lot of attention and excitement. We continue to believe that Florida would be the best place for the Convention.”
Republican Party officials caution that the search is ongoing and remains fluid. Other possibilities include Savannah, Ga.; Nashville, Tenn.; Phoenix, Ariz.; and Dallas, Texas.
