Texas delegates enjoying sweet digs

  • Text size: + -

The Texas delegation may be staying a ways from the Republican National Convention site, but there's no question that they're enjoying some pretty fancy accommodations. The delegation was assigned the Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, about 25 miles from downtown Tampa.

The grounds include an 18 hole golf course, a spa, an enormous pool (complete with poolside bar) and several restaurants. One delegate we spoke with today says he brought his wife and six kids along so they could enjoy the resort, while he's busy with official business at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Here's a slideshow of the resort 300 Texans will call home for the next four days:
