“A little overconfident,” snickered one Republican.
Gov. Cuomo was so eager to celebrate Hillary Clinton’s presidential inauguration, he booked 200 hotel rooms in DC for family, friends and supporters of his possible future bid for the presidency.
When Donald Trump won the election, Cuomo was stuck, so he had a staffer call Ed Cox, chairman of New York’s Republican Party, and offer him the giant block of rooms at the downtown Loews Madison.
“The best part is Cuomo booked so early, he locked in a really low rate,” said my insider. Cox was grateful. “Rooms in DC are a hot commodity right now.”
