-While President Obama travels to New Jersey to survey the havoc wrought by Hurricane Sandy, Mitt Romney is continuing to hit the trail. He will be on a whirlwind tour of Florida today: a 1:10 p.m. appearance in Tampa, a 2 p.m. appearance in Coral Gables and an 8 p.m. event in Jacksonville.
-Romney will be joined by some Republican heavyweights past and future: former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and ascendant young Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will appear alongside the candidate.
-Paul Ryan has a similarly packed schedule as he tours his home state of Wisconsin. The vice presidential nominee will start with an event in Eau Claire at 8:35 a.m., followed by rallies in Green Bay at 11:15 a.m. and Racine at 2:45 p.m.
-With less than a week until Election Day, the Romney campaign is planning one final, all-out push: a Friday- night rally in West Chester, Ohio, will launch the "Romney-Ryan Real Recovery" tour. Republican elected officials and other campaign surrogates will then fan out to Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
