Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

TAMPA, Fla. - For some perspective about the quality of California's seating assignment at the Republican National Convention - stage right, back a ways - consider the Texans, who are sitting right by them.

The 155-member delegation, second in size only to California, got used to sitting up front during the George W. Bush years, delegates said.

The current arrangement is "OK," said Rick Miller, a delegate from Sugar Land.

"Probably we could have done a little bit better."

In the California seats, Kellie Randle was seated with her husband, Mitt Romney adviser Jeff Randle, directly behind a former governor and a former, failed candidate for the office.

"I'm a seat away from Pete Wilson and Meg Whitman," Kellie Randle said. "It's great."

Delegates were preparing tonight to hear from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, on the first full night of the convention.
