As prominent Republicans from across the country met in Nashville, buzz around town was that the Republican National Convention could be held in Nashville in 2020.

Nashville would need enough hotel rooms to host delegates, supporters and the media -- which combined could total more than 6,000 people.

And right now, Scott Golden, the chair of the state GOP, says he likes what he sees going up downtown, so he’s pushing for the Republican National Committee to choose Nashville as the convention site in three years.

“You've got hotels coming up that will be virtually brand new when 2020 comes around,” Golden said.

President Trump is no stranger to Nashville: he made a campaign-style rally here within the first 100 days of his administration, and Vice President mike pence was here earlier this month.
