Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal invites Mitt Romney to tour areas damaged by Hurricane Isaac. Romney is trying to steal President Obama’s thunder. Did Bobby Jindal invite President Obama to tour the area? No, he was bitching at President Obama for responsiveness. Romney’s visit is more symbolic than anything.
Garrett Haake, campaign embed reporter for NBC News, reports that Romney won’t travel to Virginia as previously planned.
Forget Virginia. Romney is sending just Ryan to today’s 2nd campaign stop and going to New Orleans to survey Isaac damage instead.
