NORTH CAROLINA —

Hurricane Sandy is halting plans for Joe Biden's wife and son to appear in North Carolina on Sunday.

The storm also forced Mitt Romney to change up some of his campaign plans in key battleground states on the east coast.

Romney had to cancel an event in Florida that was set for Saturday.

Both political parties said they're canceling events because public safety comes before politics.

It is not clear whether any of the canceled events will be rescheduled.
