Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has canceled a rally planned for tonight at Wisconsin State Fair Park due to Hurricane Sandy.
"Out of sensitivity for the millions of Americans in the path of Hurricane Sandy, we are canceling tonight's events with Governor Romney in Wisconsin and Congressman Ryan in Melbourne and Lakeland, Florida," said Gail Gitcho, communications director for the Romney campaign. Governor Romney believes this is a time for the nation and its leaders to come together to focus on those Americans who are in harms way."
President Barack Obama also canceled an appearance scheduled for Green Bay on Tuesday.
Vice President Joe Biden made stops in Kenosha and Oshkosh on Friday, while Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan also is expected to campaign in Milwaukee this week.
