The US presidential candidates picked up where they left off on the campaign trail after a short break to deal with the impact of storm Sandy.
There was a spring in President Obama’s step as he descended on Wisconsin, a state that could vote either way next Tuesday.
Although Obama has not been campaigning these last few days, officially at least, Sandy still made it onto the campaign platform.
“There’s no Democrats or Republicans during a storm, there’s just fellow Americans,” he told a crowd in Green Bay, “leaders of different parties working to fix what was broken. Neighbours helping neighbours cope with tragedy. Communities rallying to rebuild. A spirit that says in the end, we’re all in this together.”
His Republican opponent Mitt Romney is also concentrating on the crucial swing states in the final days of the campaign.
With a new aggregate of polls putting the two men neck-and-neck, Romney went to Virginia, where he revisited his attacks on Obama of a week-or-so ago, claiming the president is becoming more and more petty.
“Unfortunately, what you seen before your very eyes, is a campaign that keeps on shrinking and shrinking and shrinking to smaller things,” said Romney. “I mean, he’s been out talking about how he’s going to save Big Bird, and then playing silly word games with my name and then, attacking me day-in and day-out. Attacking me doesn’t make an agenda, (it) doesn’t get people back to work.”
