ST. PAUL, Minnesota (CNN) - The Republican National Convention, cut back Monday because of Hurricane Gustav's arrival on the U.S. Gulf Coast, will resume a full schedule Tuesday, convention officials said.
President Bush will deliver his address, which had been set for Monday, via satellite at 9:30 p.m. ET Tuesday, officials said.
Tuesday's theme will be "Who is John McCain," officials said.
Former Sen. Fred Thompson, who ran in the early GOP 2008 presidential primaries, and Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democrat's 2000 vice presidential nominee, will deliver prime time speeches following President Bush.
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, John McCain's choice for vice president, is scheduled to address the GOP convention Wednesday night.
GOP officials said the convention will still have an emphasis on helping those impacted by Gustav's passage through the Gulf states.
The decision to go forward with the convention schedule was made with the agreement of all Gulf coast governors, convention officials said.
