The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The Republican National Committee is reportedly scaling back its presidential nomination convention in Jacksonville, Florida, in August, amid renewed coronavirus concerns.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told delegates in a letter obtained by The Hill that only regular delegates, amounting to about 2,500 people, will be allowed to attend the first three days of the convention.
However, on the final day of the convention, when President Trump is set to accept the party's 2020 presidential nomination, delegates will be allowed to bring a guest, and alternate delegates can attend, the letter also reportedly states.
Florida has recently had a spike in coronavirus cases.
The convention was moved from North Carolina over a disagreement about state-mandated coronavirus restrictions.
