The third Republican presidential debate takes place tonight at the Coors Event Center in Boulder, CO. But apparently, not all of the candidates are happy with their accommodations. Specifically, Rand Paul and Chris Christie, who are trailing in the polls, are upset with their green rooms (the waiting area for candidates and staff members).
And after looking at some of the pictures posted on Twitter, it’s easy to see why. The front-runners (Trump, Carson, Rubio) have some pretty sweet accommodations. Carly Fiorina even has a hot tub (although I doubt she’ll have time for a dip). But from the looks of it, Paul and Christie will be prepping in a glorified bathroom.

“This is ridiculous,” Christie’s campaign manager, Ken McKay, complained to RNC officials. “We’re in a restroom.”
Chris LaCivita of the Paul campaign also voiced his displeasure.
“Was there any advance done on the campaign work spaces?” he asked. “Because it sure as hell doesn’t seem like it.“
RNC officials said they would do their best to remedy the situation, but there’s no word yet on what, if anything, was done. Although this tweet from LaCivita seemed to indicate accommodations were made:
On the one hand, it’s understandable that these campaigns would complain about being stuck in a bathroom. On the other hand, it’s funny to hear the staff of a libertarian like Paul complaining about being treated fairly, especially considering he’s polling at four percent. Hasn’t he ever heard the expression "what the market will bear?” Apparently, four percent bears a tiny bathroom.
