Presumptive Republican Mitt Romney today has called the three (all GOP) governors in the storm's path.
"Gov. Romney has spoken with Govs. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Phil Bryant of Mississippi and Robert Bentley of Alabama about the impending storm and their local response efforts," a senior Romney aide told NBC News.
Republicans are going to kick off their delayed first day of their convention today. Romney will be officially nominated later this afternoon. But he will not officially be the nominee until Thursday when he accepts.
