LA Gov Bobby Jindal Cancels RNC Appearance To Brace For Isaac

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal announced Monday that he will not be attending the Republican National Convention. The reason for Jindal's cancellation is due to the intensifying of Tropical Storm Isaac as it moves in a similar path to that of Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf of Mexico. The governor was scheduled to speak on Wednesday evening according to the RNC schedule of events.

"I will not be speaking at or attending the Republican convention in Florida," Jindal said, adding there was "no time for party politics. This storm is non-partisan."

Jindal, in expecting Isaac to hit Louisiana on Tuesday as a Category two hurricane, urged residents of the state in low-lying coastal areas to evacuate.
