CA GOP gets hotel for Cleveland conference in city distant far

Even in a year in which CA will likely factor heavily in the Republican presidential primary, to be a Republican from a blue state is to suffer certain indignities.

The CA Republican Party confirmed on Friday that its hotel assignment for the Republican National Conference in Cleveland this summer is in Sandusky, Ohio – about sixty miles from the convention hall.

California’s 172-member delegation is the nation’s largest, and it can be challenging to discover a hotel large sufficient to fit the whole group. The , which will house the delegation, not only offers loads of “beautifully appointed authentic African-themed visitor rooms and suites,” according to its web site, but also a water park with “an exciting mix of rides, slides and adventures.”

Still, the accommodation is even more remote than in Tampa in two thousand-twelfth, when CA Republicans and a delegation from the Northern Mariana Islands shared a hotel about thirty miles from the convention site.

Delegates that year cheered their beachfront location and time to bond with fellow Californians. But they lamented grueling bus rides to and from the conference center. One night, buses didn't return some weary delegates to their hotel until three a. m., hours after proceedings let out.

Despite the size its delegation and status as a major donor state, CA Republicans typically endure a mix of pity and ribbing when traveling out of state. Number Republican holds statewide office, and not since George H. W. Bush in one thousand nine hundred eighty-eighth has a Republican presidential candidate carried the state.

Still, this year holds promise for CA delegates beyond the June seven primary. If Donald Trump fails to safe the nomination and the conference is contested, CA delegates may not be the only people slogging to and from Sandusky: Representatives of candidates seeking those delegates’ support might be, as well.
