MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WBAY) - Republicans appear bound for Milwaukee in 2024.

Milwaukee media are reporting a GOP site selection panel on Friday picked Milwaukee as the host city for the 2024 Republican National Convention.

The full Republican National Committee must still approve the choice. It has a summer meeting coming up in Chicago August 2-5.

Milwaukee’s Democratic mayor says he would welcome the convention.

“I want the economic benefits. I want the convention, I want the visitors, I want the attention of the world to be right here on Milwaukee. That’s what the RNC will bring to this city and to this state,” Mayor Cavalier Johnson said.

Nashville was the other finalist, and it could still host the RNC. However, the bid was stalled earlier this month.
