ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA (WALB) - After a shortened opening session due to Hurricane Gustav, the Republican National Convention is back on track in St. Paul, Minnesota.

President George W. Bush is scheduled to speak to delegates by satellite Tuesday night. But taking the stage at the convention will be former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson and former Democratic vice presidential nominee Senator Joseph Lieberman.  State representative and delegate Ed Rynders spoke to WALB by phone from St. Paul where he is attending the convention.

"The schedule is back on track out of respect to what was going on in the Gulf. The RNC felt that it was more important to focus on the needs of that particular region of our country during the last day. But the convention will go on now as really scheduled to get the message out on why this is such an important campaign in American history," said Rep. Ed Rynders, R-Lee County.

John McCain is slated to make his first appearance at the Republican National Convention on Thursday to accept the presidential nomination of the Republican Party.
