Romney Ceases Fundraising in Hurricane Sandy States

The Romney campaign has ceased sending fundraising e-mails to D.C., New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.  The campaign is also collecting supplies to deliver to those affected by the hurricane in some states, and in Virginia, will be deploying the campaign bus to deliver supplies. Mitt Romney also sent out this e-mail (headline: “Please take care”) to supporters last night:

Tonight, Ann and I are keeping the people in Hurricane Sandy’s path in our thoughts and prayers.

I hope that if you can, you’ll reach out to your neighbors who may need help getting ready for the storm — especially your elderly neighbors. And if you can give of your resources or time, please consider supporting your local Red Cross organization — visit to get involved.

For safety’s sake, as you and your family prepare for the storm, please be sure to bring any yard signs inside. In high winds they can be dangerous, and cause damage to homes and property.

I’m never prouder of America than when I see how we pull together in a crisis. There’s nothing that we can’t handle when we stand together.

Stay safe and God Bless,

Mitt Romney
