NY Gov. Cuomo Booked 200 D.C. Hotel Rooms for Clinton Inauguration
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was so confident that Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election that he booked 200 hotel rooms in Washington, D.C. for her inauguration.
The New York Post reported that Cuomo, a longtime Clinton supporter, planned for the rooms at the downtown Loews Madison to be used by family, friends and supporters.
When President-elect Donald Trump won, Cuomo was stuck with the reservations, so he reportedly had a staffer call, Ed Cox, chairman of New York’s Republican Party, to offer him the giant block of rooms.
“The best part is Cuomo booked so early, he locked in a really low rate,” the Posts's source reportedly said. “Rooms in D.C. are a hot commodity right now.”
