California delegates attending the Republican National Convention this week will take home a goodie bag filled with GOP gear, gift cards and some Golden State-grown staples like rice and walnuts. .
The black-and-red tote bags are stuffed with freebies like a 2012 "President" Barbie, a copy of "The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Presidents" and a $120 credit for a line of luxury swim suits. Soda, candy and ibuprofen were thrown in for good measure. Attendees also get a second bag provided to all delegates to the Republican National Convention.
All told, the California bag's contents, provided by a long list of delegation sponsors that includes Folsom Lake Ford and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, are worth up to $700. Alternates and guests get a scaled-back version of the bag.
