Beyond Isaac, Dems also looking to rain on Republicans’ party

Friday, August 24, 2012


Tropical Storm Isaac isn’t the only force threatening to rain on the Republican National Convention next week.

Democrats are breaking from the tradition of keeping a low profile during the rival party’s convention, dispatching Vice President Biden to the host city for opening day and putting other A-list surrogates on the campaign trail to perhaps steal some of the spotlight.

Biden will be in Tampa on Monday and Tuesday, before making stops later Tuesday in two other Florida cities. He will be joined in Orlando by Hollywood actress and Obama for America co-chairwoman Eva Longoria, who is also expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention the following week in Charlotte, N.C.

Meanwhile, President Obama has scheduled campaign stops Tuesday and Wednesday in the battleground states of Ohio, Colorado and Virginia.
