Vice President Joe Biden is postponing his planned trip to Florida because of Tropical Storm Isaac.

Biden was planning to go to Orlando and St. Augustine on Tuesday, but a campaign official says the trip has been postponed to ensure that all local law enforcement and emergency management resources can stay focused on Tropical Storm Isaac, which could impact Florida during the Republican National Convention.

Biden had previously canceled a planned trip on Monday to Tampa — site of the GOP convention — because of the severe weather forecast.

Biden had planned a two-day swing through Florida during the Republican meetings to counter their message.

Republican officials announced Saturday that they are postponing major convention events until Tuesday because of the storm.
