Sandy shakes up presidential campaign strategies

Hurricane Sandy pressed the pause button Monday on a frenetic presidential campaign entering its final week, prompting President Obama and Mitt Romney to cancel rallies and raising questions about the effect of the storm on voting.

Ohio, a pivotal big state, was expected to be lashed by winds of 30 to 50 miles per hour, heavy rain, and possibly snow if the storm tracked through western Pennsylvania, as expected. Power outages were feared. That could hurt Obama’s efforts there, since they rely on a robust early voting turnout.
