CLEVELAND — Walking around the Quicken Loans Arena on Sunday, I had so many questions. Does the Republican National Committee know what happened the last time someone released a lot of balloons in Cleveland? Is there a guy you call to score elephant-themed pottery for swanky lounges? And does the RNC have this man on file for occasions such as this?
Mainly, though, I was thinking this: Why on earth are New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and California in front-row seats at the Republican National Convention?
