Ryan delays Tampa trip until Tuesday as Isaac nears


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Republican presidential candidate Paul Ryan will head to the Republican National Convention a day later than expected because of the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac.

Aides to the Wisconsin Congressman Ryan confirmed Monday that Ryan will now fly to Tampa, Florida on Tuesday.

GOP officials already have trimmed the convention from four to three days because of the storm.  Isaac was veering northwestward over the Gulf of Mexico on Monday. It is expected to become a hurricane and possibly hit the Gulf region late Tuesday.

Ryan will be in his hometown of Janesville on Monday to speak to students at his former school, Craig High School, at 11:20 a.m.

He plans to spend the rest of Monday working with aides before heading to Tampa to address the convention on Wednesday night.
