The Republican National Convention will be closed to the press, according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
The Gazette says “when Republicans renominate Donald Trump for president in Charlotte, N.C., on Aug. 24, journalists won’t be on hand to witness it. … Reporters also will be kept from the room when the Republican National Committee meets to conduct official party business.”
“[W]e are planning for all of the Charlotte activities to be closed press: Friday, August 21 – Monday, 24th given the health restrictions and limitations in place in the state,” the convention spokesperson said in an email. “We are happy to let you know if this changes, but we are working within the parameters set before us by state and local guidelines regarding the number of people who can attend events.”
