Tampa mayor prepared to call off RNC for hurricane Isaac


Tampa won't hesitate to pull the plug on the Republican National Convention next week if Tropical Storm Isaac threatens the Tampa Bay area as a major storm, Mayor Bob Buckhorn told CNN Wednesday morning.

"Well, absolutely, we're prepared to call it off," Buckhorn said on the network's Early Start with John Berman. "I mean, safety and human life trump politics. I think the RNC recognizes that. The organizers, certainly Gov. (Mitt) Romney, recognize that."
