Just hours before planning to leave Washington for a campaign trip to Florida, President Obama visited the Federal Emergency Management Agency's headquarters in Washington, D.C., for a briefing on the latest preparations for Hurricane Sandy.
Officials on Sunday implored residents of the Washington area to use common sense and respect nature's will as Hurricane Sandy steered toward its clash with wintry weather from the north.
The arrival of Hurricane Sandy one week before Election Day has forced both presidential campaigns to shuffle schedules, but the massive "Frankenstorm" has particularly complicated the final push by Team Obama, cutting into the president's campaign time and raising concerns among his advisers over voter turnout -- especially in deadlocked Virginia.
