Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, and many others from CNN's Political team of anchors, analysts, and strategists hosted a week of live coverage on CNN from the Republican National Convention.
Shortly before the RNC was set to start, Tropical Storm Isaac's uncertain path targeted Tampa and eventually turned west aiming toward the Louisiana/Mississippi part of the Gulf Coast, charting along a path similar to Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall close to the same date 7 years earlier. Anderson left Tampa en-route to New Orleans on Monday to report the latest on the Hurricane.
Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the Convention.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
