Mike Williams, the sheriff of Jacksonville, Florida has expressed ’significant concerns with the viability’ of the Republican National Convention being hosted by his city as COVID-19 cases rise. He also pointed to a lack of time with respect to planning for the event, and noted that a convention like this is typically planned over an 18 month period.

"The Republican sheriff left open the very slim possibility that something might still be worked out. But he emphasized at least twice that the department had “passed the point of no return” because of tight time constraints. A convention would typically be planned over an 18-month period, he said. Planning for this one started last month." Is this convention being held primarily because its become an ego issue for the RNC? Accept that we are in the middle of a pandemic, and delay it till the time when things are better. Look at what happened in Tulsa. People starting testing positive for COVID after the rally.
