Missouri Republican Senator Roy Blunt has not decided whether or not to attend the GOP’s convention in Cleveland.
The Hill newspaper quotes Blunt says, ““I don’t have any idea. I usually don’t go for very long if I go. I am not a devoted attender of the conventions,” he said, noting he has a primary election in early August. “There’s going to be a lot going on.”
The Hill characterizes Blunt’s re-election campaign against Democratic Secretary of State Jason Kander as, “tougher than expected” .
The Hill reports the head of the Republican Senate Campaign Committee, Roger Wick, is advising vulnerable republicans to stay away from what could be a divided convention.
He recommends they attend more unifying events.
