Hurricane Sandy: Obama skips Orlando rally with Bill Clinton to return to White House

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama scratched an Orlando rally with former President Bill Clinton on Monday morning, instead flying back to the White House as the wrath of Hurricane Sandy is already starting to be felt on the east coast. Clinton will appear solo for Obama this morning and twin with Vice President Joe Biden later today for a rally in Youngstown, Ohio.

Obama flew to battleground Florida on Sunday to get ahead of Hurricane Sandy and rallied his troops last night at a campaign office where he delivered pizza and a pep talk. By Monday morning, the plan had changed and Obama was winging back to the White House to monitor the storm. A rally with Clinton in northern Virginia had already been cancelled.
