Dear Nevada Republican Party State Convention Delegate:
The Nevada Republican Party announced today that we will be hosting a virtual state convention June 12-13 due to Nevada’s social distancing guidelines and limits on large gatherings.
Since announcing last month that the convention would be moved to Lake Tahoe, the Nevada GOP has been monitoring the situation on a day-to-day basis and awaiting clear directives from Governor Sisolak as to whether Nevada would be in phase 3 and what the safety guidelines would be with hopes that it would allow for participation from at an in-person convention for the party’s various delegates from across the state.
Unfortunately, despite the fact that the Nevada GOP had presented a comprehensive convention plan, including numerous changes to our program to ensure that we were in compliance with the protocols required by the Governor and his team, state officials were unwilling to give approval for a physical convention.
The Nevada Republican Party has had a contingency plan in place for weeks to hold a virtual convention and made the decision to move forward with it today.
“Regardless of whether the convention is in-person or online, Republicans are fired up to elect our delegates to the Republican National Convention and to re-nominate President Donald J. Trump. President Trump has delivered for Nevadans time and time again and we are excited to deliver another four years in the White House for him this November.”
-Chairman Michael J. McDonald
