Given that the Tampa Convention Center sits smack in the center of an evacuation zone that would be inundated with water in a Category 1 hurricane, Mayor Bob Buckhorn suggested that the GOP might want to start thinking about contingency plans.
“Absolutely, we’re prepared to call it off,” Buckhorn told CNN. “I mean, human safety and human life trump politics. I think the RNC recognizes that, the organizers, certainly Gov. Romney recognizes that. Whatever we do will be based on getting people out of harm’s way. Politics will take second place.”
