UPDATE, 9/1, 12pm
Cindy McCain and Laura Bush will address delegates today. Talking Points Memo has the story.
In a conference call with reporters just now, RNC officials announced some additions to today's abbreviated convention schedule.
First Lady Laura Bush will introduce a video of the various Gulf Coast state governors (all Republicans, I believe) this afternoon and Cindy McCain will also address delegates, urging support for hurricane victims. Their portion of the program is expected to begin shortly before 6 ET.
"We will try not to overly politicize it," McCain campaign manager Rick Davis Davis said on the call, referring to the additions of Bush and McCain to today's agenda.
