[Utah GOP Chairman Dave] Hansen, meanwhile, explained on Facebook why the state’s two major parties are holding their convention at the same place on the same day at the same time: “There is plenty of room. The Dems are in a completely different section of the Salt Palace. They made their reservation there months after we had made ours. A previously booked event pulled out and the Dems decided to schedule there. Unfortunately, there was nothing we could do about it. Hopefully, we won't see them and they won't see us next Saturday.”
Which I would accept, except that every Democratic State Convention held during even-numbered years has been on the south end of the Salt Palace since at least 2004.
And I don't remember the last time the GOP held their state convention at the Salt Palace.
Personally, I think that we should have a dance-off in the middle of the Salt Palace. That would be fun.
