    Add the Koch brothers' massive political network to the growing list of those who say they will not be attending the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this July.

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has said that he will also skip the event, along with the party's 2008 nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, who is facing a tough re-election race.

    Despite the Koch brothers' donation of hundreds of millions of dollars to Republican candidates and causes over the past decade, Charles Koch remarked that if Democrats "will do a better job, we would support them."

    Perhaps the GOP should start looking for a slightly smaller venue.

    Even though it's in Cleveland, just 130 miles NE of here, I won't be there either. I'm now happy that we (Columbus) lost the competition for the convention.

    That could work. Though they'll have to set up a parking lot big enough to valet park all the clown cars.

    Romney skipping GOP convention, joins list of presidents, leaders

    Washington (CNN) — Mitt Romney won't attend the Republican National Convention this summer, joining three previous nominees in skipping the event and underscoring the deep divide inside the GOP over Donald Trump becoming the party's standard-bearer.

    An aide to Romney said Thursday that the former Massachusetts governor would not go, despite accepting the nomination at the convention four years ago.
