Romney, Ryan cancelling events because of Hurricane Sandy

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are scrubbing Monday afternoon and Tuesday events because of Hurricane Sandy. President Barack Obama already canceled Monday and Tuesday events. This puts both campaigns on hold to an extent in the final week before the election.

From the Romney campaign:

"Out of sensitivity for the millions of Americans in the path of Hurricane Sandy, we are canceling tonight's events with Governor Romney in Wisconsin and Congressman Ryan in Melbourne and Lakeland, Florida. We are also canceling all events currently schedule for both Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan on Tuesday. Governor Romney believes this is a time for the nation and its leaders to come together to focus on those Americans who are in harms way. We will provide additional details regarding Governor Romney's and Congressman Ryan's schedule when they are available." -- Gail Gitcho, Romney Communications Director
