With just 10 days until the election, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are keeping an eye on the weather as they campaign in crucial states.

During his flight to New Hampshire, President Obama was briefed on Hurricane Sandy during a conference call.

The president is stumping in Nashua, where he assured voters he has kept his promises from four years ago.

"I promised to cut taxes for small businesses and I did. 18 times," Obama said. "I promised to end taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailouts and we have. And by the way, we got every dime worth the money that we used for the bank rescue and we got interest with it too."

Mitt Romney has canceled campaign events scheduled for coastal Virginia.

Romney stumped in the battleground state of Florida this afternoon. At a rally in Pensacola, Romney told voters the president has come up short on a range of issues.

"The president's agenda keeps getting smaller and smaller and smaller, not just for our military, but for medicare, for jobs," Romney said. "This is not a president who has been able to stand up to the challenge of the times."

Meanwhile, Paul Ryan began a two-day swing through Ohio.
