Election 2012

Obama, Romney Back on Campaign Trail

Five days to go

|

With the American Election Day fast approaching, U.S. President Barack Obama resumes campaigning for re-election Thursday after spending several days heading the federal government's response to the Atlantic storm Sandy.  

Obama will travel to the so-called "battleground states" of Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado, three states that could determine if he or Republican challenger Mitt Romney will gain the 270 electoral votes needed to win next Tuesday's election.  The president suspended his campaigning Monday as Sandy devastated the coastal area of New Jersey and caused massive damage to New York City.  Romney also spent several days rallying for donations for Sandy's victims.
