RNC forgets to send buses to Fla. delegates

SHARE RNC forgets to send buses to Fla. delegates

Florida’s RNC delegates just can’t seem to catch a break. Already punished for moving up the state’s primary contest, their plans hit a snag Tuesday when the convention forgot to send buses to pick them up.

“Well, that sucks,” Hillsborough County GOP chair Art Wood told the Tampa Bay Times, in an article given the all-too-appropriate dateline of “STUCK ON A BUS.”

Delegates ultimately arrived about a half-hour before Tuesday’s kick-off, but it wasn’t a quick trip. The Florida delegation is staying in far-off lodgings — roughly an hour’s drive from the convention center — as a punishment for the state’s early primary, which disobeyed national party rules, according to the Miami Herald Tribune.
