October 2012 Superstorm

October 29, 2012 by  

October 2012 Superstorm, The October surprise goes by the name Sandy. And unlike many late-breaking developments of U.S. presidential elections past, neither side is certain which candidate, if either, will be helped or hurt.

What’s clear for both President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, is that the superstorm brewing off the East Coast is shaking up an already hard-to- predict contest as it enters its final week, upending campaign schedules and interfering with the rivals’ ability to communicate with voters as they make their closing arguments.

Far from the projected storm path, Sandy claimed its latest political casualty this morning when Obama returned to the White House after canceling an appearance at a rally in Orlando, Florida, that had been his last remaining chance for face time with voters in a politically competitive state before the tempest hits.

The president also canceled a campaign event scheduled for tomorrow in Green Bay, Wisconsin, to “closely monitor the impact of and response to Hurricane Sandy,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement.

Romney suspended his schedule for the next day and a half, canceling events in Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio tonight and tomorrow. “Governor Romney believes this is a time for the nation and its leaders to come together to focus on those Americans who are in harm’s way,” spokeswoman Gail Gitcho said in a statement.
