The seating arrangements during the Republican National Convention are always a toss up, but some are saying that Ohio is getting the cold shoulder. 

 

The Ohio delegation is currently seated behind Pennsylvania, a blue state, and now many Ohio Republicans are saying that Trump is giving them the cold shoulder because of their loyalty to Governor John Kasich. 

 

The question becomes: does the Ohio seating give any insight to the lack of unity within the republican party? Jeff Larson, Convention CEO says no, and that regardless of the home state and background "conventions are a time to come together to select the nominee." 

 

On the opposite side, New York gets prime seating in the arena. In addition to voting Trump during the primary, it is also his home state. Other prime seating went to California and New Jersey, two states that also backed Trump and have no chance of becoming blue states.
