With less than a week before Election Day, Mitt Romney resumes campaigning in Florida after calling off a slew of events during Hurricane Sandy.

Meanwhile, President Obama, who also cancelled three days of events, will travel to New Jersey to examine the storm’s damage. He’ll tour the state with top Romney surrogate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who has praised the president for his quick response to the hurricane.

Obama is scheduled to go back on the campaign trail on Thursday, with events in Ohio, Nevada and Colorado.

Like Romney, Vice President Joe Biden will also tour the battleground state of Florida on Wednesday, while former President Bill Clinton stumps on behalf of Obama in Iowa.

Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will campaign in his home state of Wisconsin.

And in a respite from all-things hurricane, President Obama will turn to Washington by evening where he’ll join first lady Michelle Obama to welcome local children and kids of military families who will be trick-or-treating at the White House.

Tune into Hardball tonight at 5 p.m. for the latest in election news and Hurricane Sandy.
