Milwaukee will get another chance to host a national political convention when the Republican National Convention comes to town in 2024.
The Republican National Committee on Friday officially selected Milwaukee to host its next presidential nominating convention. The final vote was first announced on Twitter by RNC chair Ronna McDaniel. There was a press conference for the announcement at the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Chicago, where members had convened this week for the RNC Summer Meeting. McDaniel and party officials were joined at the press conference by about 50 of Milwaukee’s most prominent business and civic leaders who had worked for months to help secure the bid.
