The City of Charlotte is set to renew its contract with D.C. lobbying firm Holland and Knight Holland and Knight for $210,000 a year. The firm is credited with helping the city get more than $290 million in federal funds in recent years.

One of the big wins for Holland and Knight was the $50 million federal grant Charlotte got for security during the DNC. However, every convention host city since 2004 has received the same amount of money.
