Former President Donald Trump is expected to attend the GOP convention in Columbus
COLUMBUS, Georgia (WRBL) – Former President Donald Trump will be arriving in Columbus in just over three weeks, according to an email the party sent to GOP delegates.
Trump, along with numerous other Republican political leaders, will be brought to Fountain City for the 2023 Georgia GOP State Convention, taking place June 9-10. The convention serves as an opportunity for the Georgia Republican Party to nominate candidates and leaders, and to set priorities and charters.
The Columbus Georgia Convention & Trade Center has been named as the venue for this year’s conference in May 2022.
In November 2022, Trump became the first prominent Republican to enter the 2024 presidential campaign, making the official announcement from his Mar-A-Lago estate.
US Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene became the first Georgia congresswoman to endorse the former president. Greene’s approval came the same day he announced his offer.
Trump has the most notable supporters at 72, including 10 US senators and two governors.
WRBL expects to hear more details about the former President’s visit to Fountain City as Congress draws nearer.
Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp previously announced that he would not be attending this year’s GOP state convention in Columbus.
