Tropical Storm Isaac may have delayed the official start to the Republican National Convention, but Wisconsin Public Television and PBS made it to Tampa, Fla. on time, and we have plenty to tweet, post and broadcast. Here are the many ways that we’re keeping you informed on all the political happenings in Florida.

Speaking of… WPT’s own reporter, Zac Schultz, landed in Tampa Sunday and all week he will be gathering stories from Wisconsin elected officials and delegates. Follow Zac on Twitter and read his daily blog posts on the Here and Now Update. He’s already hard at work. We saw him suiting up in the PBS NewsHour’s workspace.
