*(Via LA Times) – Republican Party officials Saturday night canceled most of the Monday opening of the GOP’s presidential nominating convention, bowing to the threat posed as Tropical Storm Isaac barrelled toward Florida.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we want to make sure everyone attending the convention is safe and everyone in Florida is not unnecessarily hindered by any activities taking place,” Bill Harris, the convention’s chief executive, said in a telephone briefing to reporters.
Under the revised plans, the convention will formally gavel open on Monday, then recess until Tuesday. The roll call officially installing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as the party’s presidential nominee will take place Tuesday, instead of Monday as originally planned.
