After a four-day interruption in campaigning caused by Hurricane Sandy, President Obama will return to the campaign trail Thursday with rallies in three battleground states.

The president will speak in Green Bay, Wis.; Las Vegas; and Boulder, Colo., to “highlight his second-term agenda to grow our economy from the middle out, not the top down,” said a statement from his campaign headquarters.

Although the president hasn’t campaigned since a trip to New Hampshire on Saturday, he has been in the media spotlight as he coordinates the federal government’s response to the destruction caused by the storm on the Eastern Seaboard. He is visiting New Jersey on Wednesday to tour the storm damage with Gov. Chris Christie.

Republican nominee Mitt Romney took a day off from campaigning on Tuesday but resumed his campaign schedule on Wednesday.
