Florida Gov. Rick Scott addressed safety concerns about Tropical Storm Isaac at a press conference Sunday, and said that it would not negatively impact the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
"The convention was a big opportunity for our state to show what a great place it is to live, work and may," said Scott. "Now, what they've learned, what they're gonna find out this week, is we know how to deal with hurricanes. We're prepared. This is a state that knows how to deal with those things.
"On top of that, we're the best hospitality state around. We have 87 million tourists here a year. We know how to have conventions, we know how to have large events, and we're gonna do a great job."
