Mitt Romney's campaign canceled events planned for Monday and Tuesday in Wisconsin and Iowa, where Romney himself was scheduled to speak, and in Florida, where his running mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) had been planning to stump. "Governor Romney believes this is a time for the nation and its leaders to come together to focus on those Americans who are in harm's way," a campaign spokesperson said. Romney will still attend an event in Ohio. Meanwhile, President Obama is monitoring the storm in Washington, after canceling his own Florida appearance.
