Cherokee is being considered to be the host town for the 2014 North Carolina Republic Party Convention.
“As of this time, Cherokee is definitely on the radar,” Mike Rusher, North Carolina Republican Party chief of staff, related. “No decisions have been made, and we are unable to confirm it yet.”
Rusher said the final announcement for the 2014 site will not be made until after the 2013 Convention which is scheduled for June 7-9 in Charlotte.
He said that the numbers of attendees will vary by year, but have averaged 2,000 people the last few years.
