President Obama and Mitt Romney essentially suspended their campaigns on Monday and Tuesday, with Obama focusing on monitoring the response to Hurricane Sandy and Romney turning his rallies into disaster-relief drives. Romney plans to return to the campaign trail on Wednesday, though, with rallies in Florida, a major swing state. Obama will remain focused on storm recovery, but with a political undercurrent. Obama will inspect damage in hard-hit coastal New Jersey with the state's Republican governor, Chris Christie, who criticized the Obama administration in a keynote speech at Romney's nominating convention but has praised Obama's storm response as "outstanding."
