On the Trail: October 27, 2012

(CNN) - As Election Day approaches, all four candidates are on the trail campaigning in battleground states on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the campaigns are looking ahead to Hurricane Sandy, who is on a path to batter the East Coast over the next several days, and how she will impact their campaign efforts.

President Barack Obama campaigns in New Hampshire, whose four electoral votes could help either candidate reach the 270 mark.

Republican nominee Mitt Romney will stump in Florida, the largest prize - 29 electoral votes - rated as a "toss up" between the two candidates on the CNN Electoral Map.

He will be joined at his Florida rallies by Sen. Marco Rubio, a popular Republican from the Sunshine State.

Vice President Joe Biden is in Virginia, which has 13 electoral votes.

GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan holds events in Ohio. The Buckeye State holds 18 electoral votes and is considered important for both campaigns.

Romney's wife, Ann, is also on the trail Saturday, holding events in Virginia.

    Why would Ryan come to Alabama, being 10 days out? You would think he'd be somewhere like Iowa or Wis, where precious EC votes are needed?
    Ryan is Wis representative and he's in Alabama?
    Seems like Republicans know Ohio is gone and now they're needing money.
    Romney sounds like he's saying thing Obama is saying. "Change, foreign policy, energy,etc...

    Ryan has been exiled to the deep red states because of his close ties to Akin and views that are held by Mourdoch.
