GOP Planners Could Extend Convention to Friday.
Republicans are leaving open the possibility of extending their Tampa convention by a day, a senior Republican official told National Journal.
With Isaac expected to strengthen to a Category 2 hurricane and hit the Gulf Coast between Louisiana and Florida at midweek, Republicans are looking for flexibility in their schedule.
Convention officials still expect to begin the convention on Tuesday.
The convention currently is scheduled to end Thursday, but major disruptions in Tampa or along the Gulf Coast could prompt officials to extend it a day.
