Giuliani: Obama dropped the ball on Sandy

(CNN) - Rudy Giuliani, a former New York City mayor, accused President Barack Obama in a Friday appearance on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" of putting his own campaign ahead of handling the fallout from Superstorm Sandy.

"If I were the president of the United States, I sure wouldn't be flitting around the Midwest and the West," Giuliani said. "My job would be making sure this thing was followed through to the very end. Maybe the first couple of days he was keeping his eye on the ball, but we got gas lines now that are a mile long. We got bodies still being discovered, and we got a president who is playing campaigner in chief."

On the Trail: November 3, 2012

(CNN) - It's all hands on deck - candidates and surrogates - for the final weekend of the 2012 campaign.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney starts off the day in New Hampshire, while his running mate stumps in Ohio. Romney then heads Iowa and Colorado and Ryan campaigns in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Florida.

President Barack Obama held a meeting at the FEMA headquarters on Saturday morning before begining his own day of campaigning. He will stump in Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Virginia.

Among the high-profile surrogates on the trail are former President Bill Clinton for Obama, House Speaker John Boehner for Romney, and both candidates' spouses.

Romney: Vote for country, not revenge

The CNN/ORC International Poll released Friday found the Buckeye State slightly tighter and within the sampling error: 50% for Obama to 47% for Romney.
