First they were from Palm Harbor’s Innisbrook Resort to the Republican National Convention in downtown Tampa.
Then they were stuck on a bus for hours following the convention Tuesday night – not making it back to the resort until after 3 a.m. Wednesday, according to TBO.
Now, Florida’s Republican delegation is facing a 15-minute hike from the security perimeter to the convention as officials try to straighten out the transportation problems facing the state’s top GOPers.
"The (Republican National Committee) needs to fix this bus problem … We need to take care of our delegates," TBO quoted Adam Putnam, Florida’s agriculture commissioner as saying. “It was a complete breakdown.”
According to TBO, the Republican Party of Florida is stepping in to remedy the problem. It will be using its own bus system to transport Florida delegates to and from the convention. The Florida GOP buses, however, don’t have security clearance. That means delegates and guests will have to walk from the perimeter to the convention, TBO said.
