President Obama “dives back into campaigning after three days immersed in managing the federal response to the storm that battered the East Coast,” the AP reports.
“The president’s advisers insist his break from campaigning had minimal impact on his standing… Still, the Democratic campaign is seeking to make up for the lost time with a heavy travel itinerary in the coming days, including rallies Thursday in Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado. Obama’s remarks Thursday will focus on boosting middle-class security, the key message the campaign is expected to push in the final days of the race.”
Reuters reports Obama’s closing “argument will touch on points he has made for months
about the choice between competing Republican and Democratic visions,
Obama advisers said, but it will put more weight on Obama’s ideas for
the future and could resurrect some of the hopeful themes that helped
him win election in 2008.”
