U.S. President Donald Trump will accept the Republican presidential nomination in Jacksonville, Florida this summer.
Trump announced last week that the Republican National Convention would be moved from North Carolina after a dispute with Democratic Governor Roy Cooper over the state's social distancing restrictions.
Trump and the RNC have insisted that the president speak to a full house.
Instead, Trump will give his acceptance speech on August 27 in in his recently adopted home state of Florida, where a top ally, Ron DeSantis, is governor.
Like North Carolina, Florida is a crucial battleground state in Trump's November election matchup against Democrat Joe Biden.
Neither Democrats nor Republicans have announced health and safety precautions for their respective events.
