Biden cancels trip to GOP convention

Excerpted from:
GOP Convention Prep

The weather has caused the Democrats to cancel VP Joe Biden’s trip to Florida – for the moment, anyway.

He was supposed to be in town to participate in the DNC’s counter-convention war room, which has an official name – Romney Economics: Wrong for the Middle Class – and officially opens for business tomorrow.

Here’s the advisory sent out last night by the Obama campaign:

“Due to disaster preparedness and local security concerns, Vice President Biden’s trip to Tampa, Florida on Monday, August 27 for campaign events has been postponed.”

“This change in schedule is being taken out of an abundance of caution to ensure that all local law enforcement and emergency management resources can stay focused on ensuring the safety of people who might be impacted by the storm, as well as those attending the activities in Tampa.”

“Additional details and media logistics for the Vice President’s stops in Orlando and St. Augustine, Florida on August 28 are forthcoming and subject to change due to weather-related precautions.”
