On the Trail: October 30, 2012

(CNN) - With one week until Election Day, neither Mitt Romney nor President Barack Obama is on the trail Tuesday. Both canceled events because of the major storm that devastated parts of the East Coast Monday.

Mitt Romney will instead attend a storm relief event in the same venue where he had earlier planned a campaign rally. His running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, and his wife Ann will also attend similar events.

Meanwhile, former President Bill Clinton will campaign for Obama in Minnesota.

See the full schedule after the jump.

11:00 a.m. ET: Mitt Romney attends a storm relief event in Kettering, Ohio

1:30 p.m. ET: Bill Clinton attends a campaign event in Minneapolis.

3:00 p.m. ET: Bill Clinton attends a campaign event in Duluth, Minnesota.

    This nasty idiot wants to do away FEMA. Mitt the twit. He wants to ban SS, Medicare. He wants to eradicate FEMA. Pathetic. Oil companies are lobbying against climate change. Folks, if you have brains, drive these Animals out. God bless. Be passionate at this time. Help each other. I do not surprise if Obama brings troops from overseas to help here at home. My vote goes to obama12.

    I thought Clinton was a New Yorker. He has offices there. Is he too good to help out? Obama is doing his job as President. Romney is doing his job as a good citizen. What's Clinton doing? He's campaigning during a national emergency. If a Republican did that the media would call him/her crass, insensitive and out of touch with the needs of the people.

    How can we trust anything he says about Obama if he is so clueless that he doesn't understand what is important right now?

    It's amazing when CNN carries Romney's water like this. Romney obviously did not cancel his appearance- He just changed the name to capitalize on the big storm.

    Liar Alert! Romney is STILL telling audiences that Chrysler is shipping all Jeep production to China. Chrysler has said Mr. Romney is wrong, and in fact will ADD more than 3,000 jobs in 3 states. Both the Chrysler and Fiat leaders say Romney is just wrong, yet Romney's lies continue.

    What kind of "family values" candidate tells such wanton lies?

    Romney will attend a relief event in Ohio and someone in cnn says he is not campaigning? Why must it be Ohio? Why not NY or NJ? Why Ohio where election is in dead heat.

    The twit having a conference call with FEMA is like the devil having a conference call with god!
    It's all for show. He is NOT the President. He doesn't hold any office (even though as somebody who doesn't work $20M a year is not a bad deal).
    Why is the twit going to Ohio to send relief help to NC and VA and not the blue states that are rally hurting?
    This goes beyond character. Psycopaths with leery creepy smiles are the worst kind.

    romney should be toast after his jeep commercial, murdoch's comments(and he did not pull his support),
    wanting to eliminate FEMA, his 47% comment, and he has a rally in OHIO-are you serious?
    yea-we really need a rally in Ohio today for Romney while people along the coast are suffering.
    If we elect romney america is more stupid than i thought.

    Cathy- You're naive if you think that Obama suddenly getting involved and being
    photograhed with FEMA officials isn't just an election ploy to finally appear presidental after ignoring his job for the last 18 months as a relection candidate.

    Same venue, same town, same time... but different name? Romney must think voters are really stupid.

    Mitt Romney's father was right when he told Mitt , you need to make a lot of money before you run for President.

    He meant Buy the Presidency !

  13. The REAL Truth...

    @Bill Housley – I thought Clinton was a New Yorker. He has offices there. Is he too good to help out? Obama is doing his job as President. Romney is doing his job as a good citizen. What's Clinton doing? He's campaigning during a national emergency.
    NEWSFLASH SHEEPLE: – it's NOT a national emergency. According to Willard the emergency is state specific and only warrants local/state help (IOW – no FEMA!!). That makes Sandy a state-level situation according to your candidate.

    Interesting...the sign on the gymnasium where the "relief rally" is going to be held calls it a "campaign rally". More etch a sketch, Mitt.

    Wait, the "relief" donations will go to swing states affected, not New York or New Jersey. It's true, Mitt really does only care about 53% of America! He thinks the 47% live in Blue States and aren't worth his attention.

    Ummmm. The Clintons hail from Arkansas. Unlike Mr. Romney- who thinks he is from Massachussetts. Hypocracy, no?
