Republicans have gaveled their storm-shortened 2012 national convention into session in Tampa, Florida.
GOP officials canceled Monday's planned first day of the convention because of Isaac, the tropical storm growing to hurricane strength in the Gulf of Mexico off Florida.
The now three-day convention starting Tuesday will still feature all of the major scheduled speeches, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told CNN on Sunday.
