RNC planners could extend convention to Friday

Here we go…

Republicans are leaving open the possibility of extending their Tampa convention by a day, a senior Republican official told National Journal. 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.

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.
