In US news and current events today, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has cancelled the 2020 GOP Convention set to take place in Houston, Texas amid a rising Texas COVID spike. The current Texas coronavirus caseload and Texas COVID spikes have been a cause of concern for the Republican Convention 2020 for months now, as the Republican party plans to go full steam ahead with an in person 2020 GOP Convention amid the Texas COVID-19 spike. The decision of Mayor Turner stems from memories of his mother, who was a hotel worker, some of the most vulnerable essential workers who would be in danger of COVID without social distancing.
