Romney focuses on storm, refrains from attacks on Obama
KETTERING, Ohio (AP) - As superstorm Sandy continues to take its toll on the Northeast, Mitt Romney is looking to strike the right tone at his campaign rallies, with just a week remaining until the election.
He and running mate Paul Ryan initially said they were canceling rallies out of sensitivity for the millions of Americans in the storm's path. But Republican campaign events have resumed today in the critical states of Ohio and Iowa -- with changes made to the program.
Romney today held what was billed as a 'storm relief event" in Kettering, Ohio -- at the arena where he'd been scheduled to hold a political rally. There were no attacks on his rival during Romney's brief remarks. He then helped to collect food donations for storm relief efforts.
