ST. PETE BEACH, Fla. - With almost all official convention business canceled for the day, California delegates used their free 24 hours to relax, sleep in, see the sites and take in some of the unofficial programming offered by Republican supporters. Delores Chavez Harmes, an alternate delegate from San Diego, mixed work and play - she attended a breakfast speech by New Jersey Gov.  Chris Christie  and a screening of the conservative film “2016: Obama's America.” But she also stopped for a neon-green crème de menthe cocktail in  the lobby of the Tradewinds resort and planned to head to the historic pink Don CeSar Hotel down the road.

TAMPA, Fla. - Noting concerns about Tropical Storm Isaac, Republican officials announced late Saturday they would be severely curtaining the scheduled Monday programming - a decision that left at least one local delegate with mixed feelings. La Cañada physician Greggory DeVore, who specializes in fetal ultrasound, said he was disappointed that he would not be able to see Monday's keynote speaker, Ann Romney, and hoped she would be rescheduled. In fact, officials announced that Romney, the wife of presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, would speak Tuesday evening.  In any event, DeVore said a shorter convention schedule might not necessarily be a bad thing.
