(NewsReady.com) – The Republican National Convention (RNC) was initially set to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina August 24-27. However, that could change now that the state Governor Roy Cooper (D) said he’s “unable to guarantee” it could host a “full attendance.” President Donald Trump is putting the pressure on Cooper, and other states are competing to potentially take over as host for the convention.

Texas is on the list of states interested in hosting the event. Texas Republican Party Chairman James Dickey said the state “would welcome President Trump and the RNC Convention.”
Florida is also looking to secure the event with Joe Gruters, the GOP party chair in the Sunshine State, saying they’re committed to hosting a safe and successful convention.
Vice President Mike Pence also mentioned Georgia as a potential option. He cited these three states have made “tremendous progress” on getting their economies back online. To the administration, this is a positive sign that they could be fully prepared to handle the RNC convention’s scale, while North Carolina is still on the fence about such issues.
