Romney to visit storm-damaged Louisiana
Romney has scheduled a last-minute visit to Lafitte, where he will tour damage with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. The storm canceled the first day of Romney’s Republican convention, and his campaign has been considering a visit for several days.
Heavy rains and flooding have contributed to at least five deaths in Louisiana and Mississippi this week after the slow-moving storm knocked out power in whole neighborhoods.
In Louisiana, Romney will thank emergency first responders for their work.
