Republican Convention 2012

GOP Cancels Most of Monday's RNC Events

Isaac a much bigger blowhard than any of the planned speakers.


Republican officials on Saturday cancelled most of Monday's planned opening of the Republican National Convention, bowing to concerns about  the safety of delegates who were to gather as the tropical storm Isaac barreled into the area.

The plan, announced in a conference call, was to formally gavel the convention open, then recess until Tuesday. The most notable events of the convention were later what was to be a four-day celebration capped with Mitt Romney's nomination acceptance speech on Thursday night.
