Milwaukee’s chances of hosting 2024 RNC may have improved after Nashville’s draft agreement was withdrawn before the Nashville board voted on it

  • Nashville’s odds of winning the . to host Republican National Convention 2024 hit a snag Tuesday after key legislation was repealed before a vote. Two members of the Council withdrew a bill at the last minute to pass a draft agreement between the Republican National Committee and Nashville off the Metro Council’s agenda. Opponents of the bill said it would likely have been voted out on the first of three readings. The move makes Nashville’s status as a host city finalist less secure compared to its contender, Milwaukee.

  • The Nashville 2024 Host Committee asked the administration to withdraw the bill, sponsored by councilors Robert Swope and Jonathan Hall, to allow time to “address multiple concerns and objections” raised by councilors, according to a statement Tuesday evening to The Tennessee. The committee hopes the bill will be resubmitted before the next council meeting on July 19.

  • The Republican National Committee was expected to approve its 2024 convention venue at its meeting on Aug. 5. Nashville can no longer approve an agreement by that date, but the committee can change the deadline. The Milwaukee Joint Council unanimously approved a draft agreement with the Republican National Committee last month.
