Republican Delegates Support Decision to Cancel Convention

Posted: Updated:

The Gustav crisis means the Republican National Convention will not come off as scheduled Monday and maybe not for the rest of the week. 

As a result, some of the Republican party delegates decided to come back Sunday night from St. Paul, Minnesota.

They arrived at the Jackson-Evers International Airport around 9 o'clock.

One delegate from Louisiana says he was glad with McCain's decision to cancel the convention.

New Orleans delegate J.T. Hannan says, "As far as the convention goes, I think it's proper and I really like what I've been hearing about turning the convention into a big service project.  I think that's awesome."
