Extra Innings: RNC Could Go to Friday

This week’s Republican National Convention may be extended into Friday in order to make up for time lost Monday due to Tropical Storm Isaac, National Journal reports.

Chris Frates and Alex Roarty note:

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…

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.
