There are no plans to change the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina from its at least partial in-person format when it formally nominates President Donald Trump, according to Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel.

“We will not be holding a virtual convention,” McDaniel said in a call with reporters on Monday, per the Associated Press.

The GOP chair said that the convention, scheduled on August 24 to 27, is “quite a ways away.”

“And there’s ample time for us to adjust, if necessary,” she told reporters.
