Obama to resume campaigning on Thursday

Associated Press
 

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans to return to the campaign trail on Thursday with stops in Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado, in his first campaign events since before a massive storm throttled the East Coast.

Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod said Wednesday the president intends to resume campaigning on Thursday. Campaign officials say the president will make stops in Green Bay, Wis., Las Vegas and Boulder, Colo.

The president’s last campaign event was last Saturday in New Hampshire. He flew to Orlando on Sunday to attend a campaign rally on Monday with former President Bill Clinton but scrapped his campaign plans to return to Washington to monitor preparations for superstorm Sandy.

Axelrod was interviewed Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
