Severe weather pushes GOP convention to Tuesday.
- GOP officials are delaying the start of the Republican National Convention in Tampa to at least Tuesday due to Tropical Storm Isaac, according to a memo released by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.
- The convention will officially convened Monday, and then immediately recessed until Tuesday, to accomodate travelers expected to encounter "severe transportation difficulties."
- Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to strike the Tampa Bay region Monday, bringing with it sustained rain and high winds.
- Priebus said decisions about how the schedule will be affected could come as soon as Sunday.
