ST. PAUL, Minn. - John McCain says Republicans will suspend most of the activities planned for the opening session of their national convention Monday because of the threat of Hurricane Gustav along the Gulf Coast.
McCain, who will accept the presidential nomination Thursday night, says only those portions of the program that are absolutely necessary will be held.
His words were beamed via satellite from St. Louis to the convention site in St. Paul, Minnesota, where Republicans are gathering to nominate him for president.
