Mitt Romney’s campaign has canceled a campaign event in swing-state Virginia because of Hurricane Sandy.
The campaign said that a Sunday night rally in Virginia Beach, Va., would be rescheduled due to the approaching hurricane. The weather system could bring heavy rains, winds and snowfall to the Mid-Atlantic region, and has been labeled a “Frankenstorm” by forecasters because it is on track to collide with a mass of cold air.
Romney still plans to hold two other events in Virginia on Sunday, according to his campaign. One event is at the University of Richmond and the other event is at Battlefield High School in Haymarket.
The campaign of President Obama, meanwhile, said all its events were currently “still on,” though the storm is being monitored closely and both Obama and Vice President Biden “are being kept apprised on developments.”
