Matt Shupe, a California Republican operative, is staying with Matt Shupe, a Cleveland Democrat.
California's Shupe, who works for Chavez, Dhillon and other Republicans, said he looked up every other Matt Shupe he could find when he joined Facebook 10 years ago. He kept in touch off and on with Cleveland Matt Shupe and his wife over the years.
"When all this kinda happened I said, 'Hey, I know someone in Cleveland,'" California Shupe said. "So I started talking to him and his wife and they said I can come and stay with them."
Cleveland Shupe's law office is right next to the convention site, so California Shupe is going to carpool with him.
"His law office is literally in the business park where the convention is happening," California Shupe said. "So I'm going to go crash with Matt Shupe and he's gonna let me carpool into the convention with him."
