  1. Sorry to see Aaron Del Mar on the convention floor.
    He ran as a Kasich delegate and lost, but wrested an at large spot at the state meeting. Will he bolt to his first presidential preference Hillary before the November election.

  2. Hi all. I’m a delegate, and I know you won’t be suprised to know that this place is replete with a who’s who of Never Trumpers, ” former” NeverTrumpers, and fence sitters. Kinzinger, Brady,– the Illinois cabal is all here and trolling around. Mark Kirk’s election is weighing far more heavily on their minds than Trump’s. On the national scene, Darrell Issa spoke at our hotel breakfast and reminded us of what a solid fellow our Senator is. He also mentioned Eric Cantor in the same breath. Oh the irony.
    Ah well. Trump/ Pence for the win.
    By the way, in this article’s photo, I am the one in black with her eyes closed.????

  3. Thank you for all your efforts on behalf of those of us who are sick and tired of the status quo, Ms Nevins.
    Hope you’re enjoying the convention, looks to be much fun from where I’m sitting.
