Hurricane Delays Start Of Republican Convention
The Republican National Convention will convene Monday and then suspend all further activities until some time Tuesday.
Monday was the day scheduled for the vote to formally nominate Mitt Romney as the Republican Party’s presidential candidate –
that vote will move back to Tuesday, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said.
No state delegations have backed out of the convention, and the organizers said they were working to secure alternative transportation and accommodation options should the need arise.
“We have a lot of people that need to plan,” Mr. Priebus said. “We’re not going to put delegates on a bunch of buses over the bridges between Clearwater and St. [Petersburg] when we can’t predict how severe the wind is going to be.”
