Dallas Will Totally Get the GOP Convention

Let's party!

Ray Washburne taunts Vegas. Photo by me

I have a friend who knows a thing or two about a thing or two. He runs in the right circles and has lots of hair. He’s also sourced up with the aborted Vegas effort to land the 2016 Republican convention. This morning he sends word: “It appears a nearly done deal now that Dallas will get the convention. Vegas had it nearly locked up, but Dallas entered a bidding war and appears willing to effectively spend anything it needs to get the convention.” All of which gives me an excuse to post my favorite photo of Ray Washburne, the finance chairman of the Republican National Committee. Thank you, Ray!
