GOP resuming convention

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com

The Republican National Convention, cut back Monday because of Hurricane Gustav's arrival on the U.S. Gulf Coast, will resume a full schedule Tuesday, convention officials said.

President Bush will deliver his address, which had been set for Monday, via satellite at 9:30 p.m. ET Tuesday, officials said.

Tuesday's theme will be "Who is John McCain," officials said.
