Donald Trump is among the casualties of the reorganized GOP convention schedule, according to Talking Points Memo. The real-estate mogul’s schedule couldn’t handle a rescheduling, the blog reports, adding that Trump was in Tampa on Sunday for a planned Monday appearance.

The convention’s Monday schedule had to be delayed and many speakers pushed back because of Tropical Storm Isaac’s arrival in the gulf.

Meanwhile, Politico is reporting Paul Ryan’s arrival is delayed to Tuesday because of the storm. Ryan was originally supposed to arrive on Monday.
