Republican Convention schedule dramatically altered…

Good afternoon, Netizens...

The Republican National Convention will convene tomorrow, as planned, but today Rick Davis, Campaign Manager for the John McCain Campaign stated in a press conference a short time ago that only the business aspects of the convention will be conducted tomorrow. Due to Hurricane Gustav, all other convention business, including roll call, have been temporarily suspended.

Davis stated that he could not make “any commitment past 5:30 tomorrow afternoon” due to the unpredictability of the hurricane heading for the Gulf Coast tomorrow. However, he repeated his statement that Republicans will “put on the best possible convention as possible, given the circumstances.”

Davis also noted that delegates to the convention from the Gulf States were already on a chartered plane heading home to be with their families and/or get them out of harm's way.
