Looks like some Republicans won’t be attending the Republican National Convention in Cleveland…

According to The Hill:

“A number of top Republicans may skip the Republican National Convention in July, CNN reported Tuesday.

Among the biggest names considering skipping are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — a former presidential candidate — and Sens. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and Richard Burr (R-N.C.), both of who are up for reelection this fall.

Some of those who are considering skipping the convention are instead focusing on campaigning at home, the report said. Others don’t want to be tied too closely to a potentially messy presidential nomination fight.

Bush told CNN he doesn’t plan to attend the convention, and Ayotte said it was “unlikely” she’d be in Cleveland.

“I’ve got a lot of work to do in New Hampshire, I have my own re-election and I’m going to be focusing on my voters in New Hampshire,” she said.”
