Storm Plans

Election Works Around Sandy's Schedule

Super-storm or not, the political show must go on. Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is prepared to hit all of his scheduled campaign stops Monday, rally-hopping from Ohio to Illinois to Iowa and ending his day in Wisconsin. But that doesn’t mean Mitt’s ignoring the treacherous weather slated to hit the Northeast. He’s got New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on speed dial, for one thing, and members of his campaign will be collecting storm-relief supplies at their North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Virginia offices. Meanwhile, President Obama is heading back to Washington and letting Bill Clinton stand in for him at a Florida rally. Both candidates are giving the residents of states in Sandy’s path a break from fundraising emails for the next day or so.
