JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Despite a surge in coronavirus cases in Florida, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry is promising a “full arena” for the Republican National Convention in August.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends Weekend,” the former state GOP chair said Saturday that any health protocols that are deemed necessary will be in place.
“We were able to demonstrate the ability to put together and put on an event in a safe, responsible way as we emerge from COVID-19,” he said. “We were responsible during the pandemic. We … flattened the curve pretty quickly over time. Our hospitalizations are low.”
“We’re not going to operate out of fear. We are going to operate out of data, science, and get people back to work in a responsible way. And that’s what this convention is,” Curry said.
