It appears that the host cities are poaching talent that becomes available from their competitors to host the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Cathy Nugent, who spearheaded Kansas City’s early push to land the 2016 Republican National Convention, is now working for Denver’s bid.
Nugent was pushed off KC’s team late last year when the organizing responsibility shifted to Mayor Sly James’ office. At the time, she said she was angry, frustrated and even bewildered.
“I’ve been the face of this,” she told The Star in December. “And now, all of a sudden, where is she?”
Well, where she is now is a member of Denver’s convention push. The city is considered one of the early favorites.
Republicans say Nugent, a long-time GOP organizer in the Kansas City area, signed a contract and began work for Denver in early January.
Perhaps we will be seeing more restrictive contracts for the convention host committees in the future?
