Primary Purgatory for Fla. Delegation?

Are Florida delegates relegated to Palm Harbor, an hour away from Tampa, because the state displeased the Party?

Florida delegates at the Republican National Convention are based in Palm Harbor, about an hour north of Tampa, a penalty for moving the state's presidential primary earlier than the national Republican Party would have liked.

South Carolina did the same, and its delegates are also banished to the far reaches of the region, sharing the Innisbrook resort in northern Pinellas County.

The two delegations had breakfast together Monday morning. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam welcomed the South Carolina delegates, calling them Florida's "partners in primary purgatory."
