Obama, Romney camps carefully return to campaigning in wake of deadly storm

The Obama and Romney camps waded slowly into campaigning Tuesday in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy, announcing events in the battleground states of Colorado and Ohio.

The Obama campaign said former President Bill Clinton will make two stops in Colorado — in Commerce City and Denver.

The campaign said Clinton’s trip is part of a swing through battleground states and states with strong Democratic bases, which include Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin.

However, campaign officials did not say if or when Vice President Biden or President Obama, busy with storm response efforts, will resume attending campaign-related events.

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is scheduled to attend a storm-relief event in Kettering, Ohio. He will be joined by NASCAR’s Richard Petty and country singer Randy Owen to help collect donations.
