Super Storm Sandy stalls presidential campaigns

Super Storm Sandy stalls presidential campaigns

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - In wake of disaster, campaigns assume lower profile.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Oddly enough, one week before the election, both President Obama and Mitt Romney are doing their best to appear as if they are not campaigning.

It’s all due to Super Storm Sandy and not wanting to be seen as being too political in the wake of a disaster.

Just seven days before he does or doesn't become President-elect,
Mitt Romney turned an Ohio campaign event into one providing storm relief and food.

Romney told the Ohio crowd,

“We have heavy hearts as you know with all the suffering going on in
a major part of our country, lots of people hurting this morning, they were
hurting last night."

President Obama not only canceled campaign events for Tuesday but now Wednesday as well.

Instead, he made a surprise stop at the Red Cross near the White House.

Wednesday, he will visit the hard hit state of New Jersey.

And the president got unexpected praise from a New Jersey Republican, one who has been actively campaigning for Romney.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made it a point to say what a good job Mr. Obama is doing,

“I spoke to the president three times yesterday. He has been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state.”
