The Republican National Committee unanimously voted on Friday to hold its 2024 convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced on Twitter.

The big picture: The RNC was expected to choose Milwaukee as the site of the 2024 Republican National Convention, as the party focuses its efforts on flipping Wisconsin.

  • After the city hosted the Democratic National Convention in 2020, President Joe Biden went on to narrowly win the state.

What she's saying: "Milwaukee is a world-class city, and we are eager to see it shine in the spotlight come 2024," McDaniel tweeted.

  • She added she looks forward to working to "deliver an incredible convention for our Party and nominate the next President of the United States!"
