Warily, the CT GOP will watch the Trump show
Charles Bruckerhoff, a businessman, Vietnam vet and former UConn professor, raised a Trump flag in 2016 at his home in northeastern Connecticut, then packed his bags for a circuitous road trip in his new role as a 69-year-old itinerant campaign volunteer.
He wended his way to Cleveland for his debut as a delegate to a Republican National Convention. The route was set by campaign needs of Donald J. Trump, not Google maps. He went to Cleveland via New Hampshire, South Carolina and Texas.
And Cleveland was only a stop. Ahead lay Wisconsin, West Virginia and New Jersey.
On election night, he was in Pennsylvania, his last stop and a state crucial to Trump’s victory. Trump won Pennsylvania by a fraction of a percentage point, the state’s tightest presidential victory since 1840. At 3 a.m., Bruckerhoff sipped champagne.
Now 73, he is a delegate again, as enthused about a uniquely provocative president in 2020 as he was about a uniquely provocative candidate in 2016. But there is no convention to attend, effectively canceled by COVID-19.
