Charlotte will be home to RNC 2020. Here’s what you need to know.
The Republican National Committee announced Thursday that Toni Anne Dashiell will lead the party’s Committee on Arrangements — and therefore will be in charge of organizing the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte.
Dashiell is presently the Republican National Committeewoman for Texas. She also is on the Republican National Committee’s Budget Committee.
In a news release, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said Dashiell has dedicated her life to the party.
“I’m confident that with Toni Anne as chairman, we will celebrate the stellar American comeback President Trump has brought to this great nation,” she said.
The Republican National Committee voted July 20 to hold its 2020 convention in Charlotte. Last Monday, the Democratic-controlled Charlotte City Council voted 6-5 to back the RNC.
Dashiell made headlines last year as the founder of Right2Speak, a conservative women’s group that aims to “counteract the angry, extreme liberal voice in the mainstream media and social media on matters of policy and personal freedoms.”
The group organized a counter-movement to last year’s Women’s March, encouraging women to not participate in the protest and instead post photos of them living life in a “positive” way, using hashtags like #NotMyProtest and #WeShowUp.
The Committee on Arrangements will consist of one Republican Party representative from every state. The committee will oversee planning for activities during the event.
“I’m looking forward to the months ahead and working with such an incredible team that will nominate President Trump and Vice President Pence to continue to Make America Great Again,” Dashiell said in a news release.
