President Obama is on board Air Force One on his way to Orlando, Florida for campaign events. "[Obama] is bound for Orlando to squeeze in some campaigning before Sandy really bears down," according to the pool report.
Tomorrow, the president is scheduled to hold campaign events in Florida, and then travel to Ohio. As of now, he's scheduled to return to Washington tomorrow night.
Earlier today, Obama visited the Washington headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, prior to the East Coast being hit by hurricane Sandy, which will likely happen starting tonight and well into tomorrow night.
"While at FEMA the President participated in a briefing with federal partners including FEMA regional directors," a White House official told the pool reporter. In the briefing the President was joined by FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate, FEMA Deputy Administrator Richard Serino, Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromonaco, Deputy Assistant to the President for Homeland Security Richard Reed. Other members of the FEMA leadership team were also part of the briefing. National Hurricane Center Director Rick Knabb joined by video conference."
Obama also had a conference call with governors and mayors whose constituents will be affected by the storm.
And then Obama left town, sure to be out of the storm's path, and on his way to campaign events.
