Presidental Campaigning Continues In Aftermath Of Sandy

By  | 

President Barack Obama plans to return to the campaign trail on Thursday with stops in Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado, in his first campaign events since before a massive storm throttled the East Coast.

Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod said Wednesday the president intends to resume campaigning on Thursday. Campaign officials say the president will make stops in Green Bay, Wis., Las Vegas and Boulder, Colo.

The president's last campaign event was last Saturday in New Hampshire. He flew to Orlando on Sunday to attend a campaign rally on Monday with former President Bill Clinton but scrapped his campaign plans to return to Washington to monitor preparations for superstorm Sandy.

The president will speak at the Coors Event Center on Thursday night. Tickets for the event can be picked up at any campaign office in Boulder or Longmont.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney is planning to host an Ohio rally on Friday to launch a four-day sprint to Election Day.

The Romney campaign reports that the supporters will campaign across the country in groups through Monday, the day before the election. They will visit 11 states, including Colorado.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will be in Colorado on Thursday. He will speak at a grassroots event at Island Grove Event Center in Greeley. Tickets for the event can be found at the Mitt Romney campaign website.
