With Pittsburgh officially out of the race, Milwaukee, Nashville and Salt Lake City are the final three contenders to host the GOP National Convention in 2024, where the Republican Party will officially crown its presidential nominee in the upcoming White House race.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) site selection committee will travel to Nashville in a week, as the Tennessee capital argues for hosting the event.

Salt Lake City presented its facilities to the site selection committee earlier this month when the RNC held its annual winter meeting in the Utah capital this year.


Last week, Milwaukee had a chance to make its case, as committee members toured Wisconsin’s biggest battleground city.

RNC officials were joined by former two-term Conservative Governor Scott Walker on their tour of the city. Longtime former RNC chairman Reince Priebus, who served as the first White House chief of staff during the administration of former President Donald Trump, was also on hand. Sources tell Fox News it’s likely Priebus, a Wisconsin resident, will chair the organizing committee if Milwaukee wins the convention.

Priebus told Fox News earlier this month that Milwaukee would be a great choice not only because it “doesn’t get any better than” summer in Wisconsin, but also because the city is “a bit more key in hand” than its rivals for the convention.


Walker, speaking to Fox6 of Milwaukee after Wednesday and Thursday’s meeting with RNC officials, said he “heard a great buzz from people today that VISIT Milwaukee has done a fabulous job.” .

Priebus said in a local radio interview that Milwaukee officials “put on such an amazing show.”

But the RNC pushed back on speculation that Milwaukee is in the driving seat to clinch the convention.

“There are three major cities vying to host the Republican National Convention and each has submitted a strong and competitive bid. Our committee members are in the process of completing site visits in each of them and no decision has been made. been taken on which will host,” said RNC senior adviser Richard Walters. “We look forward to continuing the bidding process and putting on an amazing convention.”


The RNC say the final decision on the host city will be announced at their summer meeting in early August.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who was the runner-up in the 2016 GOP nomination race, Senator Rick Scott of Florida, Chairman of the Republican National Senate Committee, Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina — who experts consider potential 2024 GOP presidential hopefuls — are all part of the event’s organizing committee, according to an invitation obtained by Fox News.

The evening, titled “Defending the Nation’s First Primary Cocktail and Fundraiser,” will take place March 30 on Capitol Hill, home of Ron Kaufman, RNC treasurer and longtime Massachusetts committee member. New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Steve Stepanek is also hosting the event.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who made numerous stops in New Hampshire during his unsuccessful bid for the presidential nomination of the 2016 GOP, are also part of the host committee.

News of the fundraising event was first reported by Politico.

The entire RNC will vote at the summer meeting on their 2024 presidential nomination schedule.


The party’s presidential nominating process committee unanimously adopted a report at the winter meeting that recommends making no changes to the top of the primary and caucus schedule.

The panel was led by Jeff Kaufmann, GOP chairman of Iowa, the state whose caucuses have kicked off the calendar for bipartisan primaries and caucuses for half a century. Stepanek, along with the presidents of South Carolina and Nevada, the other two first excluded states that vote third and fourth on the GOP schedule, also served on the committee.
