Obama returns to campaign trail Thursday
President Obama will return to the campaign trail on Thursday with only five days remaining before the election, visiting the battleground states of Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado. Obama canceled events on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to oversee the government’s response to Hurricane Sandy, which has ravaged parts of the East Coast. The campaign’s recommencement comes at a critical juncture. National polls show a deadlocked race for the White House, and some state-level surveys indicate tighter-than-expected contests.
