With the next round in the Republican presidential debates set, tensions are high enough without any extra drama.
But what campaign staff for some GOP candidates found at the debate site sent the Republican National Committee scrambling.
As campaigns were led on a tour of the Coors Event Center, the site of Wednesday’s third Republican debate, they were shocked to find glaring differences in the candidates’ greenrooms.
Lower-polling campaigns accused the RNC of giving higher-polling candidates, such as Donald Trump and Ben Carson, lavish greenroom spaces compared to their closet-like spaces, according to Politico.
Rand Paul’s senior advisor and strategist, Chris LaCivita, posted photos of the disparity. Trump’s allotted space resembled a posh suite in one of the billionaire’s properties while Paul’s cramped room seemed to be dominated by a toilet.
Gov. Chris Christie fared no better, leaving his campaign manager, Ken McKay, steaming.
“This is ridiculous,” said McKay, according to Politico. “We’re in a restroom.”
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio got lucky with what appeared to be a theater in his assigned space, and Carly Fiorina was allotted a jacuzzi.
RNC officials, apparently exasperated with the situation, agreed to take action after a tense meeting.
In a photo posted later Tuesday, it appeared the Rand Paul staff was happy with the results.
