Michelle Obama hits Chicago Sunday night: Avoiding Hurricane Sandy

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--First Lady Michelle Obama--in a change of plans--will fly to Chicago on Sunday and spend the night in her home town in order, I am told, to get ahead of Hurricane Sandy and make her Monday campaign stops in battleground Iowa. President Barack Obama also scrambled his travel schedule and is leaving the White House Sunday night to stump in battleground Florida with Bill Clinton Monday there and in Ohio. Because of the storm, working its way up the east coast, Obama is canceling his northern Virginia stop with Clinton on Monday in order to return to the White House to monitor developments.

Mrs. Obama is also planning to spend Monday night in Chicago as her schedule is being revised because of the weather. No word yet if she is going to their South Side home.
