Republican National Convention closes to press

Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, will be closed to the press due to social distancing restrictions imposed by the governor of North Carolina, according to CNN.

Reporters will not be allowed on site as RNC delegates vote to formally nominate President Donald Trump as the 2020 Republican presidential nominee, but the vote will be livestreamed, the Republican official said.

“Given the health restrictions and limitations in place within the state of North Carolina, we are planning for the Charlotte activities to be closed press Friday, August 21 — Monday, August 24,” the RNC convention spokesperson said in a statement Saturday.

The number of delegates will be reduced from 2550 to 336.
