GOP delays start of convention due to Tropical Storm Isaac

Posted:

TAMPA, Fla. (WKOW) -- Tropical Storm Isaac has caused organizers to push back the start of the Republican National Convention.

The Republican National Committee Chairman says the convention will convene on Monday and then immediately recess until Tuesday afternoon.

Isaac is moving toward Florida right now. The storm brought drenching rains to Haiti overnight and killed two people in the island nation.

Florida's governor has declared a state of emergency Saturday, ahead of Tropical Storm Isaac.  

27 News will cover the Wisconsin delegation at both the Republican and Democratic conventions. Capitol Bureau Chief Greg Neumann will be at the RNC starting Tuesday, August 27. On September 4, he will be at the DNC, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
