Could GOP Convention Be Cancelled?

"There is a distinct possibility that the 2012 Republican National Convention will be cancelled," the Boston Globe reports.

A series of conversations with convention organizers made clear the Romney campaign realizes that Tropical Storm Isaac's "potentially horrid wrath could eclipse any bunting-draped imagery they generate inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum. That would render the whole convention exercise a net loss for their candidate, rather than a positive force propelling him into the fall campaign."

New York Times: "Republicans were wary of the optics of television coverage split between the revelry and partisanship surrounding Mr. Romney's nomination and the threat of the storm making landfall in Louisiana or Mississippi seven years to the week after Hurricane Katrina left an American city in ruins."
