Hillary Clinton and her team weren’t the only people who were certain that she would win the presidency.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo apparently was so convinced that her coronation was a done deal that he booked 200 rooms in D.C. for her inauguration, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.
“A little overconfident,” one Republican quipped.
Cuomo’s overzealousness was one Republican’s gain, according to Page Six.
The governor had one of his staffers call New York’s Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox and offer him a block of the rooms at DC’s Loews Madison.
“The best part is Cuomo booked so early, he locked in a really low rate,” a source told Page Six and added that Cox was grateful for it. “Rooms in DC are a hot commodity right now.”
Hilarious. “The best part is Cuomo booked so early, he locked in a really low rate…” https://t.co/v9aHAUScDf

@TimRunsHisMouth He didn’t get the memo. Day before election HRC campaign cancelled celebratory NYC fireworks. This per NYPD and DNC.

Some had ideas of how Cuomo and fellow Democrats could still use the rooms.
