Republicans have 'contingency plan' for bad weather at convention, but don't ask for details


If you're going to the Republican convention next week and you're worried tropical storm Isaac might cause some problems as it heads up that way, you should be. ABC News reports heavy rains and strong winds will likely hit Tampa on Monday.

Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer said there's a Plan B if things get dicey. He told CNN today, "We do have contingency plans to deal with weather-related and other circumstances that may occur to ensure that the business can go on at the RNC, and Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will become our nominees."

So that takes care of that. But what about a plan for... an emergency?

"Florida is ready," Gov. Rick Scott told Bloomberg. "The state is more prepared than any state in the country for hurricanes.”

So what's the plan?

Scott declined to disclose contingency plans. [Convention spokesman James] Davis referred questions about back-up plans to the Secret Service, where spokesman Brian Leary declined to comment on details.

Looks like you'll just have to trust them!

The good news is as of today, Isaac reached the Caribbean and has gotten a little weaker. The bad news is that it might still become a hurricane by next week.
