Republican nominee Mitt Romney will travel to LaFitte, La. today to observe damage inflicted on the area by Hurricane Isaac, CNN reports. Romney will travel to the storm-affected region following a morning campaign event with his running mate, Paul Ryan, in Florida.
Garrett Haake, campaign embed reporter for NBC News, reports that Romney's decision to travel to Louisiana will supplant a planned campaign stop in Virginia originally scheduled for this afternoon. Only Ryan will appear at the day's second campaign event in the Commonwealth.
