As we said before, even politics is being shaken up by the pandemic. Here’s NCGOP chairman Michael Whatley:
Due to the national health emergency caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 Virus, commonly known as the Coronavirus, the North Carolina Republican Party has moved to reschedule our annual State Republican Convention to June 4-7 in Greenville, North Carolina.
Since early last week, I and the NCGOP Staff have been in constant communications with the Greenville Convention Center, our host hotels in Greenville and our other vendors about the conditions of the COVID-19 Virus Outbreak in North Carolina and the potential need for us to move the convention back from our original May 14-17 schedule.
Taking into account the safety of our attendees, and in light of the numerous State, Local, and Federal regulations implemented in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the NCGOP, our hosts and our vendors have made the mutual decision to move the Convention date back. We are grateful for the support from our hosts and vendors and pleased to announce that all hotel reservations and ticket purchases made to date will be honored by both the hotels and the NCGOP. You can find more information regarding the Convention and make reservations at our host hotels on our website at www.NCGOP.org.[…]
