One of the factors that voters weigh when trying to decide whom to vote for for president is the judgment of the party leaders about not only the economy, but the military commitments, taxes, payment of national debts, etc.
I would add to that a decision on where to hold the national convention designed to nominate the president and vice-president candidates.
If I were one of those participating in the decision, I think the last place I’d plan to hold a convention in August would be anywhere on the Gulf Coast, or Atlantic Coast – specifically because of the possibility of hurricanes. I mean, don’t those folks know that is hurricane country?
If the Republicans lose any momentum or ground because of this choice of convention sites, they should.
