Florida is still going to see its delegation to the Republican National Convention – held next week in Tampa – cut in half for breaking party rules on when the state could hold its presidential primary.
But all of the would-be delegates will be allowed on the convention floor, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told the Tampa Bay Times’ political blog The Buzz.
The other half of what would have been the Florida delegation will instead be designated as “honored guests,” Priebus said. The state will also lose 160 guest passes.
“They received 90 percent of every penalty available to us,” Priebus said.
