Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney edged back into active campaigning on Tuesday while President Barack Obama stayed close to the White House, rival candidates calibrating their responses to superstorm Sandy and the misery it inflicted on millions.
Gov. Martin O’Malley says early voting will resume in Maryland on Wednesday, after two days of cancellations due to Superstorm Sandy.
The balance of opinion shifts slightly in Romney’s direction, as it did in early October. This reflects Romney’s turnout advantage over Obama, which could loom larger as Election Day approaches.
The approach of Hurricane Sandy is prompting Vice President Joe Biden to cancel a campaign visit that he had scheduled to Scranton, the city where he grew up.
Since January, nearly every news platform – from print to Internet – has seen a massive increase in people looking to follow campaign news.
President Barack Obama has spent months trying to balance his re-election bid with running the government. Now, just when his campaign needs him the most, with little more than a week before the election, his official job is beckoning.
President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney’s meticulously arranged travel schedules, a crucial element of their final-stretch strategies, could be upended in the last full week before Election Day by a super storm barreling toward some battleground states.

President Barack Obama sharply challenged Mitt Romney on foreign policy in their final campaign debate Monday night, saying, ‘every time you’ve offered an opinion you’ve been wrong.’ The Republican coolly responded, ‘Attacking me is not an agenda’ for dealing with a dangerous world.
The eyes of millions of voters upon him, the Republican candidate is quick to poke holes in his rival’s arguments. But he’s just as ready to take the moderator to task when he believes the predetermined ground rules have been breached.
