MILWAUKEE, WI. (WSMV) - On Friday, the GOP Site Selection Committee voted to recommend Milwaukee as the host city for the 2024 Republican National Convention.

WTMJ 4 reported that the entire Republican National Committee would make a final decision during its summer meeting on ,Aug. 2-5 in Chicago. In a statement sent to WTMJ 4 Friday, RNC Senior Advisor Richard Walter said the following:

Tennessee lawmakers are still working to bring the RNC to Nashville since the city is still considered a finalist.

One of the roadblocks GOP lawmakers are facing is the bill has yet to be approved by Metro Nashville Council, whereas Milwaukee had approved its bill in June. Some on the council say the city doesn’t need the tourism boost and doesn’t want the added risk of violence.
