Romney and Obama campaigns cancel events because of hurricane

  • The massive hurricane barreling toward the East Coast has both presidential campaigns throwing out their fourth-quarter playbooks, canceling events in the storm’s track and attempting to balance last-minute intensity with a show of compassion for people whose lives could be upended.
 
On Sunday, politicos from both sides said it was still too early to tell how the storm would affect the race, but that access to voting centers would be a concern if effects from the storm persist until Election Day.

"I don’t think anybody really knows," top Obama adviser David Axelrod said on CNN’s "State of the Union" about the potential political impact of Hurricane Sandy.

"Obviously, we want unfettered access to the polls because we believe that the more people come out, the better we’re going to do, and so to the extent that it makes it harder, you know, that’s a source of concern. But I don’t know how all the politics will sort out."
