Friday Morning Political Headlines: TS Issac vs. The RNC Pt. III, Issac goes west

As the state’s eyes continue focused on the storm activity off shore. The rest of the country focuses on Tampa, the sight of the Republican National Convention next week.

It appears that the storm could brush up against the western side of the state but it remains to see how severe the weather will be. There will no doubt be precautions to keep everyone safe.

Still, everything else is proceeding as planned as Tampa braces for both the storm and the legions of Republicans that will attend and participate in the parties, workshop, festivities, and of course the main program.

If there are any changes to the convention, this blog will be sure to keep you updated.

Have a great weekend and stay dry.
