A Tale of Two Campaigns: Obama Begs Supporters to Make Calls – Romney Asks Supporters to Make Donations to Hurricane Victims

Barack Obama yesterday begged supporters to make calls for his campaign.

But not Mitt Romney
The Romney campaign asked supporters to bring disaster relief supplies to the hurricane victims.
The Hill reported:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan scheduled “storm relief” events Tuesday after previously canceling planned campaign rallies.

Romney will attend an event in Kettering, Ohio, Tuesday morning with race car driver Richard Petty and country music artist Randy Owen. He had previously scheduled a campaign rally at the same site with Petty, Owen, and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday afternoon, but later scrapped the campaign events out of deference to those in the path of Hurricane Sandy.

The Romney campaign did not advise what the event would entail, but a Republican source indicated attendees would be asked to bring disaster relief supplies to the event, and that Romney might give brief remarks.

Ryan, who was originally scheduled to campaign Tuesday in Colorado, instead returned home to Wisconsin on Monday night. On Tuesday afternoon, Ryan will drop by a Romney campaign office in La Crosse, where he will thank volunteers gathering or donating items for storm release efforts. Later in the evening, Ryan is scheduled to stop at another campaign office in Hudson, again thanking supporters.
