‘It’s a little like a reunion’: Romney donors get VIP treatment at RNC
TAMPA—For many of the thousands of delegates in town for this week's Republican National Convention, getting to the convention site in downtown Tampa means a long bus ride through heavy traffic from hotels located as far as 40 miles away.
But it's a different story for top donors to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, many of whom are being housed this week at a Westin Hotel on Harbour Island just around the corner from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the convention site. For supporters who were lucky enough to be rewarded with rooms at the Marriott Hotel, where Romney and his family are staying, the commute is even shorter—just a walk of a few hundred yards to security.
