The council voted 6 to 5 to approve the necessary preliminary contracts needed to host the convention.  Proponents of hosting the convention have cited the economic benefits that it would bring to the city.  The GOP was also previously considering Las Vegas as a host city before deciding on Charlotte, which hosted the Democratic convention in 2012. Democrats have yet to determine where they will hold their convention in 2020, but they have narrowed their choice down to bids from Houston, Miami and Milwaukee.
