So one day reince announces GOP convention to be held in Cleveland, then Lebron James selects the Caveliers as his once and future basketball home. Bam! Goes reince's plan to have a June convention to, as he claims, get the GOP candidate using cash only available after the convention. originally targeted for June 28th, now, with Caveliers very likely to be a finalist NBA team, probably pushed back to July 18th. :(
Of course, a June convention would also give more time to try to repair the inevitable crazy talk in the GOP primaries.

As AP says: "Preibus insisted his party's convention be scheduled for early summer 2016, roughly 2 months (!) sooner than has become the norm. That would give the GOP's next presidential nominee quicker access to tens of millions of dollars in general election cash.
   'the candidate can be broke, but they're not able to raise general election m oney until the convention is held,' Preibus said earlier this week.
   But James' return from the Miami Heat could complicate that timeline and perhaps Republican efforts to win the White House."

And that cash may be needed for Republicans to walk back some of the crazy that will be evident in the primary season.

Also a bummer for Reince could be an early HRC coronation in the Democratic primary, since it could leave her with money to go after Republican candidates/nominee. Plus the probable bump for democrats an August convention would give (always assuming to Kerryesque failure to react to slurs).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
