South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard may be changing his plans to attend the National Republican Convention in Florida because of a pending hurricane.
Daugaard is scheduled to leave Monday for the convention in Tampa. But officials in that state are now preparing for the arrival of Tropical Storm Isaac, which is expected to be elevated to hurricane status later this weekend. Officials have pushed back major convention activities to at least Tuesday.
Tony Venhuizen, the Governor's press secretary says state officials are now "evaluating" plans for Daugaard to leave Monday. He says there may need to be changes made in the travel schedule.
Daugaard's wife, Linda, and Venhuizen, who is also his son-in-law, will accompany the governor on the trip.
