I had a mild case of déjà vu when news broke on Thursday that the Republican National Committee (RNC) would hold its 2020 presidential convention here in my hometown of Charlotte, N.C.
That’s because the Democratic National Committee held its 2012 political convention here. Each morning for one week that summer, I trekked from the suburbs with my colleagues Emily Belz and Lee Pitts to downtown Charlotte, where we’d stay until late into the night, reporting on the happenings in the 2012 race.
