    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is slated to speak at a breakfast for delegates at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., Monday.
     
    Christie attended a rally for New Jersey's delegates on Sunday. NBC10's Rosemary Connors caught up with the governor there and asked him about his keynote address, to which he responded-- "there's no chance I'm giving a preview."

      The threat of Tropical Storm Isaac forced officials to postpone some events.
     
    Christie referred to his "get the hell off the beach" quote that he made a year ago as Tropical Storm Irene headed for New Jersey. To loud applause, the governor told the delegation he was brought to Florida on Sunday "to make sure if there's any idiots who were on the beach, tell them to get the hell off the beach."
     
    Christie will deliver the convention's keynote address on Tuesday night.
