Hurricane Sandy suspends presidential campaign? Hardly. (+video)
President Obama is in Washington handling storm response, but the Democrats have plenty of other political activity going. So does Team Romney, including travel to 'storm relief events.'
At a time of disaster, politicians put their differences aside and cease campaigning, right? Well, it depends.
One week before Election Day, President Obama remains in Washington, overseeing the federal response to hurricane Sandy, which has devastated coastal areas in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic. He canceled his campaign events for Monday, Tuesday, and now Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Mr. Obama did leave the White House, dropping by Red Cross headquarters and making remarks. The White House also announced he will travel Wednesday to New Jersey to view storm damage with Gov. Chris Christie.
Vice President Joe Biden has scrubbed part of his schedule, canceling events Tuesday in Ohio and on Thursday in his hometown of Scranton, Pa., but continuing with two rallies Wednesday in Florida. On Monday and Tuesday, he also recorded two interviews with Latino radio programs. First lady Michelle Obama has no public events on her schedule Tuesday or Wednesday.
