President Obama has canceled two campaign stops on Monday and Tuesday due to Hurricane Sandy, the White House announced Saturday night.
Sen. Marco Rubio's 12-year-old daughter was injured in an accident involving a golf cart Saturday, prompting the rising conservative star to leave the Romney-Ryan campaign bus and race home to care for her.
With Hurricane Sandy looming, Mitt Romney's campaign has postponed all three of his scheduled campaign events in Virginia on Sunday "to ensure that emergency resources personnel would not be diverted."
President Obama took his campaign to battleground New Hampshire Saturday, devoting a significant portion of a speech in Nashua to slamming Mitt Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts - the Granite State's neighbor to the south.
Battleground Virginia is one of the states right in the anticipated path of Hurricane Sandy, and the State Board of Elections said Saturday that the state's general registrar offices and more than 2,500 polling places will be given a "high priority" for power restoration, if it's required, to head off disruption to the election process.
Forget polls, pundits, and prognosticators: In 17 of the past 18 presidential contests, the outcome has been correlated with whether the Washington Redskins win or lose their final home game before Election Day.
Sen. Marco Rubio mocked the economic plan that President Obama started touting this week on the campaign trail, calling it a "picture book."
Hurricane Sandy isn't expected to make landfall on the East Coast for at least another two days, but the huge storm is already impacting the presidential campaign, forcing Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Mitt Romney each to cancel weekend events in Virginia Beach.
Ann Wagner, the Republican candidate running for Missouri's 2nd Congressional District seat currently held by Rep. W. Todd Akin, touted Mitt Romney and blasted President Obama Saturday, in part by recounting her personal experience of working at her family's retail carpet business at a young age.
President Obama devoted his second-to-last weekly address before the Nov. 6 election to discussing Wall Street reform and the independent consumer watchdog that came with it – the brainchild of Democrat Elizabeth Warren, who is locked in a tight Senate race with incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown in Massachusetts.
Local news anchors are known for lobbing softballs in interviews with national candidates, but that's not what happened Friday when President Obama appeared on KUSA-TV in Denver.
A newly-formed independent party super PAC funded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spent nearly half a million dollars in only three days last week in a highly unusual bipartisan fashion.
Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife gave $10 million to the super PAC supporting Mitt Romney this month, making him likely the largest political donor of all time and replenishing the super PAC's exhausted coffers for ad buys in the final days of the election.
After four years of being criticized for failing to work with Republicans, President Obama joked Friday that he'll even do household chores for congressional GOP leaders to get a bipartisan deficit reduction deal if he's elected to second term.
Republicans appear to be winning the voter-turnout battle so far in the crucial swing state of Colorado, according to figures released Friday by the state Secretary of State.
