Tropical Storm Isaac Could Dampen Republican National Convention

People heading to the Republican National Convention are bracing for a little déjà vu.

Four years ago, Hurricane Gustav brought the first night of the Republican National Convention to a halt -- even though it took place in Saint Paul, Minnesota, more than a thousand miles from its Louisiana landfall.

Now Tropical Storm Isaac has set its sights on the Southeast -- and possibly Tampa, where the RNC will take place next week.

Tampa's mayor says he isn't worried about the potential for rough weather.

He tells CNN city authorities are trained and ready to host the big event.

50,000 people are expected to descend on Tampa for the convention.
