Pittsburgh is one of four cities the GOP is considering for its 2024 national convention, according to a recent report from Politico. VisitPITTSBUGH confirmed it submitted a formal proposal late last year

Along with Pittsburgh, the GOP is considering Milwaukee, Nashville, and Salt Lake City, Politico reports.

“While we are actively discussing this bid with the Republican National Committee, we have not received word from the Committee that Pittsburgh is a finalist to host the 2024 convention. We are engaged in discussions and exploring this opportunity with our community partners as well,” VisitPITTSBURGH said in a statement about the Politico report.

Pittsburgh is not unfamiliar with being a site for presidential candidates.

During the 2020 election, Heinz Field was the site of a drive-in rally featuring Joe Biden and Lady Gaga the night before the election.

“The Republican National Committee is grateful for and appreciative of the overwhelming interest from cities across the country to host the 2024 Republican National Convention,” RNC Chief of Staff Richard Walters told Politico.

It’s expected the RNC will make a decision this spring.

Pittsburgh has never played host to a major-party convention. Philadelphia hosted the first GOP convention in 1856 and has hosted it a total of six times, most recently in 2000. Philadelphia also has hosted the Democratic National Convention three times, as recently as 2016.
