New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, a member of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle, was so confident she’d win the election that he pre-booked 200 hotel rooms in Washington, DC for himself and his friends to celebrate Hillary’s inauguration.
Oops. Money down the drain. Here’s more from Page Six:
Gov. Cuomo was so eager to celebrate Hillary Clinton’s presidential inauguration, he booked 200 hotel rooms in DC for family, friends and supporters of his possible future bid for the presidency.
“A little overconfident,” snickered one Republican.
When Donald Trump won the election, Cuomo was stuck, so he had a staffer call Ed Cox, chairman of New York’s Republican Party, and offer him the giant block of rooms at the downtown Loews Madison.
“The best part is Cuomo booked so early, he locked in a really low rate,” said my insider. Cox was grateful. “Rooms in DC are a hot commodity right now.”
