Temporarily putting his campaign on hold, President Barack Obama took a break from non-stop campaigning in the swing states to visit the devastated Atlantic City following the shocking damage delivered by Hurricane Sandy. The move pressures his political rival, despite being in the genuine interest of residents.
President Barack Obama put campaign battleground travel on hold to tour the ravaged New Jersey coast Wednesday, while down-to-the-wire campaigning resumed in swing state Florida that is critical to Republican Mitt Romney's victory plan.
Obama is emphasizing his incumbent's role for a third straight day, skipping voter contact in the handful of states that will decide the election to visit victims of Hurricane Sandy around Atlantic City in a state he's confident of winning. Obama planned to resume campaign travel Thursday with gusto, making stops in Nevada, Colorado and Wisconsin.
