On Friday, Mitt Romney landed in Louisiana to survey the damage wrought by Hurricane Isaac, which battered the state during the week. "I'm here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to what's going on here," Romney said in the town of Jean Lafitte, which had been inundated with floodwaters. "So that people around the country know that people down here need help." Romney accepted the nomination to be the GOP's presidential candidate the previous evening.
