Hurricane Gustav Could Affect The Start of the RNC

The threat of Hurricane Gustav is causing the broadcast community to rethink the planned coverage of the Republican National Convention, slated to take place September 1-4 in Minneapolis-St. Paul, it is reported by Broadcasting & Cable.
Joanna Burgos, a spokesperson for the RNC, tells the trade magazine that the convention's organizers are watching the path of the hurricane and could delay the start of the convention depending on the impact of the storm on the U.S.
This would not be the first time that events caused John McCain to alter his plans. Burgos says that the Republican presidential hopeful had postponed his 2000 announcement to run for President due to the crisis in the Balkans.
ET will be front and center at the RNC, so keep checking back for more convention coverage.
