Mitt on GOP convention hurricane threat: Plans depend on airport being open

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney acknowledged Thursday that Tropical Storm Isaac--a potential hurricane--could impact the GOP convention in Tampa with delegates and others starting to arrive over the weekend for the Monday kickoff.

Romney told FOX Business Network's Peter Barnes. "I have no comments about Isaac. We'll talk to the weather people about what happens there, but obviously any plans for Tampa depend upon the airport being open, able to receive all the delegates and people like myself need to get there. I feel pretty good that we'll be in Tampa and will have a great convention."
