The GOP clearly has no choice but to hold the convention at Doral.
 
2020-06-02 9:39:34 PM  
They should hold the convention at Mar-A-Lago.  No masks, no social distancing, and open-carry all the guns you want.
 
2020-06-02 9:44:34 PM  
Take it to Moscow. That would make more sense.

Trump just tweeted saying they're looking for another site.  He's in his usual petulant child victim mode.

Like he would allow the majority of his supporters to do anything more than wait tables there.

Nope.

If you've followed the rhetoric, you may have noticed that the GOP is slowly bending.  Cooper isn't giving in to their talk. To leave would be defeat.  They're looking for a way to save face.

Gee....I wonder if there's another beautiful place in the south that could host such a spectacle.

Doral needs a makeover, and taxpayer money speaks to Trump like nothing else...and DeSantis is always willing to suck a little cheeto dick.

Miami...brace yourselves....

Can't gerrymander state lines - NC has a Dem governor. Ya know, one who isn't a petulant, willfully ignorant child.

I wish more Democrats started acting that way to R's.

Start telling them, "tough shiat. You don't like it, GTFO. After all, state's rights and all that shiat you've said for 50+ years, right?"

Um, Trump and the RNC chair both say NC is out now. They don't bend, they just lose.

As long as they can have it in a place that's terribly ventilated and over crowded I'm OK with it.

NC will probably save money this way.

He wouldn't allow most of his supporters to even do that. At best, they'd have some job where their "betters" (ie the wealthy) wouldn't have to actually see them at any point.

Not so fast.

Taxpayer money wouldn't be used to rehab Doral. RNC cash would be. And they need every dollar they can get.

Rob4127: They'll do it in El Paso, Texas, because stigginit, and proximity to Cowboys For Trump and the Sunland Park Border Wall.


Don't count on it. The Republican Mayor of El Paso is in a tight race for re-election. (the Democrat he succeeded dropped out of the race in 2016 to beat cancer, and now he wants his job back).
 
2020-06-02 10:16:54 PM  
City budgets are stretched thin already because of the 'Rona and the George Floyd protests. Very few municipal governments want to spend more money and municipal resources they don't have inviting what is sure to be a Class A Clusterfark.
 
2020-06-02 10:21:32 PM  
Hotels in NC should be real slow in refunding any advances or deposits the RNC put on rooms and anything else.

Excellent!  If any group can manage moving a 20K crowd with 2 months notice it's this group.  Especially since everyone will be working for the singular goal of the group as a whole, and not trying to cheat and steal from each other nonstop.

Hopefully none.

If the RNC were smart, (but they aren't) they'd accept NC's offer, scale back on the pageantry and spending, and dump the money in tight races.

But Trump is gonna want a show, so a show he shall have.

True.  And, given that Hard Rock's new guitar hotel and casino has been closed for two months, and the RNC would actually pay the bill...Desantis will probably pitch it hard.  Not super close to Doral...but a convention center in the hotel, and Desantis is Trump's favorite ass kisser down here and he had his tax money decimated by Disney closing and Spring break season being shut down, so he would be thrilled to strong arm who he needs to if Agolf Twittler wants it here.

Thank God I will move out of this state by then.

Most large cities in red states. If they lose money on the convention (they will) they'll just cut education and food stamps some more.

I hear you, but Cooper's not going to give in on public health issues so Trump will have to admit defeat. I don't think that's too likely. It's more likely he'll do some slapdash last-minute amateur spectacle in another location. Especially if they have tanks.

Maybe Gaetz will actually get charged with a DUI this time. 3rd time's a charm!
