The Republican Party will delay the bulk of its convention until Tuesday afternoon because of the severe weather forecast from Isaac.

That's according to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

Priebus says the convention will convene briefly Monday and then immediately recess until Tuesday afternoon, once the storm is expected to have passed.

He says in a statement that the party made the decision after consulting with Florida Gov. Rick Scott and federal and local emergency officials.
