“Because of the current restrictions related to the Covid-19 in North Carolina, do not allow the celebration to happen in Charlotte, and because the governor did not want to work with (the republican party) to provide guidelines, the celebration of the appointment and the economic impact that goes along with it must be moved to Jacksonville “, said the release of the republican party.
