Obama visits storm victims; campaigning to resume Thursday
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is traveling to New Jersey today to meet with Gov. Chris Christie and victims of superstorm Sandy.
Parts of the state have experienced massive flooding. Power outages are still a major problem across the state and state government offices and most schools will remain closed today.
Christie says when beaches are rebuilt, they’ll likely look different because boardwalks and amusement rides were washed away.
The president plans to return to the campaign trail on Thursday in his first campaign events since before a massive storm throttled the East Coast.
Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod said Wednesday the president intends to resume campaigning on Thursday. Campaign officials say the president will make stops in Green Bay, Wis., Las Vegas and Boulder, Colo.
Axelrod was interviewed Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
