As rain moved into Tampa Sunday ahead of the Republican National Convention, a reception was held for the thousands of delegates who will converge in Florida to nominate Mitt Romney as their presidential candidate.
Though the threat of the storm has people on guard, it didn't keep Louisiana and Arkansasdelegates from turning out for the opening of festivities.
Tropical Storm Isaac has already delayed the start of the convention. Outside of a ceremonial event marking the beginning of the RNC, events for Monday have been called off.
Among the major changes: South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's speech has moved to Tuesday night, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee speaks on Wednesday night and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush delivers his remarks Thursday night.
