Presidential campaigns slowly resume
Many voters believe they know all they need to know about President Obama from his four years in office; meanwhile, Mitt Romney is having trouble convincing Americans to like him enough to vote for him.

resident 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."
