McCain Camp Says He,Palin Will Likely Speak to RNC

I’m on a conference call organized the RNC about the convention. No news on what is going to happen beyond today in terms of the speaking schedule. RNC Chairman Mike Duncan said they were continuing to monitor the situation and make “day by day assessments.”

But McCain campaign manager Rick Davis did say that Sarah Palin arrived in town last night and was working on her speech, and was “confident” she would deliver it, and that, at this point, there are no contigency plans for McCain to accept the nomination anywhere else but St. Paul./

Davis described a number of plans Republicans have to help those affected in the Gulf states:

— On Wednesday morning, they’re asking for volunteers to gather at the Minneapolis Convention Center to assemble “comfort packages” of toilietries and snacks, with help from Target and FedEx.

— There will be a fundraising drive, with a list of charities suggested by governors in the affected states.

— Laura Bush will introduce a video featuring the affected governors asking for help and Cindy McCain will ask delegates for their support in a speech that will not be “over-politicized.”
