Obama Gets Hurricane Briefing, Calls Gov. Scott
he Republicans — at their convention in Florida — aren’t the only ones keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Isaac.
President Obama received a briefing on the storm and called Florida Gov. Rick Scott about federal-state cooperation.
Obama told Scott that the administration “would continue to make resources available as necessary to support the state as the governor’s team prepares for and responds to the storm,” said a White House readout.
