ST. PAUL (CNN) – More information about how Monday's abbreviated opening session of the Republican convention will run should be available in the next several hours.
According to Credential Committee Chairman James Herring, a conference call is underway with RNC Chairman Mike Duncan and others to figure out the
details of what needs to take place tomorrow in order to meet convention rules.
Herring is also the chair of Mississippi's Republican Party and plans to meet with his delegation later today to assess whether anyone needs to go home to prepare for Hurricane Gustav. Herring said the priority for his delegation is to protect everyone's "life" and "property" but "we also need a quorum" to complete convention business.
