Dimple Ajmera was a big target.

The councilwoman, who voted no to the convention, shared on her Facebook page that she contacted police about a threat, that read: "I hope to see her out at dinner sometime so I can get in her face and let her know our outrage just like the left does. Anyone know where she hangs out?”

During Monday's meeting, councilwoman Lawana Mayfield, who also voted no to the convention, talked about how ugly things have gotten with name calling. She accused President Donald Trump of promoting that type of behavior.

With the convention expected to take place in the Queen City in 2020, many are wondering if council members, across the board, will get increased negative attention online.

Rally's for and against the convention are already popping up.

The official announcement of Charlotte being selected as the host city is expected to happen this week.
