TAMPA, Florida — Republican officials announced the cancellation of the first day of the Republican convention here due to safety concerns surrounding Tropical Storm Isaac.
U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Spokane had been scheduled to speak Monday evening, so the cancellation called into question her moment in the spotlight.
But Todd Winer, a spokesman for McMorris Rodgers, says via email that “We’ve been told that even with the change in Monday’s schedule, the Congresswoman will be speaking this week.”
We’ll keep you posted as details emerge.
A little wind and rain won’t stop me either. I’ll be in Tampa all week covering the convention (and in Charlotte next week for the Democratic convention).
