Senator John McCain is heading to Mississippi Sunday to see the preparations under way for Hurricane Gustav, campaign officials said Saturday night.
The hurricane, which is heading toward the Gulf coast, poses a delicate problem for Republicans: they are gathering in St. Paul for their national convention just as the storm has led to the evacuation of New Orleans, reviving memories of Hurricane Katrina and the much-maligned response of the Republican administration three years ago.
Mr. McCain plans to go to Jackson, Miss., which is inland, with his wife, Cindy, and his newly-selected running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, his campaign said. Mr. McCain will take only a small pool of reporters, and will tour a hurricane center with Gov. Haley Barbour, the Mississippi governor.
