Due to Isaac, Gov. Jindal may miss convention speech

By AP Staff

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says he's considering skipping his speaking engagement at Republican National Convention because of Tropical Storm Isaac.

Jindal said at a news conference Sunday afternoon that he wouldn't leave his state while it's threatened by the storm. Around the time he spoke, a hurricane warning was issued for parts of the state east of Morgan City, which includes the New Orleans area.

He also called a state of emergency in Louisiana and suggested that people leave low-lying parts of coastal parishes.

Isaac is expected to be a strong Category 2 hurricane when it comes ashore along the Gulf Coast late Tuesday or Wednesday. Wednesday is the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

    Stay home, Bobby. Your responsibility is to your State. The convention can go along without you, and you can always air your remarks later.

    Why not just record or broadcast from your home in-state? Knock out both proverbial birds with one stone.
    You don’t have to physically be there to get your message out.
