In a boisterous video Wednesday, Virginia’s Republican delegates gathered to formally announce their nomination of Donald J. Trump to a second term in 2020.
All 46 of the delegation’s votes went to President Trump.
The nomination announcement at the national convention is a proud tradition held by both Republicans and Democrats.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, however, the quadrennial formality was moved from the floor of a convention hall to a local campaign office in Virginia Beach.
The Republican National Convention is set to kick off on Monday, August 24.
John Fredericks is the publisher and editor-in-chief of The Virginia Star.
He is also a Trump 2020 delegate and the chairman of the Trump Virginia Delegation.
