Politics took a back seat for a few days while the nation focused on the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy. President Obama and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie checked out the damage and the President offered New Jersey storm victims some reassurance.
President Obama: "We are here for you and we will not forget we will follow up top make sure you get all the help you need until you've rebuilt."
Christie is a staunch supporter of Mitt Romney, but he gave Obama a thumbs up for his efforts to help New Jersey residents.
"I cannot thank the President enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state."
Mitt Romney campaigned in South Florida but the storm victims were part of his message.
Mitt Romney: "We come with full hearts today excited about the prospects ahead we also have heavy hearts given the number of people in a time of great difficulty, given the hurricane that struck the mid atlantic states of our country , our thoughts and prayers go to them."
Vice President Joe Biden kept up his attacks on Romney and running mate Paul Ryan during a stop in Central, Florida.
Ryan stopped campaigning in time to get home and go trick or treating with his family,
now it's crunch time for the candidates.
Obama reaches out to voters today in Las Vegas, Boulder, Colorado and Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Romney will focus on Virginia with stops in Richmond, Roanoke and Virginia Beach.
