Mitt Romney will resume campaigning Wednesday with a trio of events in Florida, while President Obama has canceled his election events to stay in Washington to monitor fallout from the storm the ravaged the East Coast.

Romney’s move effectively ends the temporary suspension in the presidential campaign triggered by the landfall of Hurricane Sandy.

Even though Obama will be focusing on coordinating response to the storm, his campaign has shown an awareness of the fact the election is only a week away. The White House updated reporters early Tuesday morning with the president’s work on response efforts to Sandy and released photos of Obama meeting with federal officials.
