CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Congressional Republicans will hold their annual retreat in September in Baltimore, months after postponing the event first set to be held in West Virginia.
Republican members of the House of Representatives will take part in the retreat, which is scheduled for Sept. 12-14.
The Congressional Institute, which organizes in retreat, first planned to host the retreat from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 at the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs. The event was postponed because of the partial shutdown of the federal government.
The announcement of the location comes weeks after President Donald Trump criticized Baltimore; he called parts of the city “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”
Senate Republicans took part in a private, one-day retreat earlier this year in Washington, D.C.
