Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal’s appearance before the Republican National Convention, scheduled for Tuesday night, is now a strong possibility for cancellation.
“The governor was slated to speak at the convention in 2008 when Gustav hit, he not only didn’t speak, he didn’t even go,” said Kyle Plotkin, Jindal’s communications director. “He will certainly not leave the state if our people are in peril.”
The good news for convention-goers is that while tomorrow is likely to see high winds and rain, the path of Isaac is shifting westward. The bad news is that it makes it more likely that the tropical storm or hurricane will reach the Louisana coast and perhaps New Orleans.
