Wolfeboro, N.H. (AP) - Mitt Romney says his thoughts are with those in the path of the storm bearing down on the Gulf Coast.
But the Republican presidential contender suggested Monday that he was not considering canceling the Republican National Convention in Florida.
The strengthening storm is expected to make landfall near New Orleans this week in the midst of the GOP's convention. It's also the seven-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated much of the Gulf Coast.
Romney briefly addressed reporters Monday morning as he entered a high school auditorium near his New Hampshire summer home to rehearse his convention speech.
He says he hopes that those in the storm's path are "spared any major destruction."
Asked whether he had considered canceling the convention, Romney said only, "we've got a great convention ahead."
