RNC Cancels Convention’s Monday Events
Due to Hurricane Isaac, the first day of the convention won’t be held. Reince Priebus’ statement:
Due to the severe weather reports for the Tampa Bay area, the Republican National Convention will convene on Monday August 27th and immediately recess until Tuesday afternoon, August 28th. After consulting with Governor Scott, NOAA and local emergency management officials, we are optimistic that we will begin an exciting, robust convention that will nominate the Romney-Ryan ticket.
Rand Paul, Nikki Haley, and Mike Huckabee were among Monday’s scheduled speakers.
