The Romney/Ryan campaign bus will have a new mission over the next several days. Rather than transporting the candidates from stop to stop, the bus will be used to deliver relief supplies to those struck by Hurricane Sandy.
As reported by The Hill, "Mitt Romney's campaign has sent its bus to collect and distribute donated supplies for those in the path of Hurricane Sandy."
Romney was originally slated to campaign over the weekend in Virginia, but canceled plans there and joined running mate Paul Ryan in Ohio. Curt Cashour, Romney's Virginia communications director, tweeted Monday that the campaign bus will instead be used to transport basic supplies to local storm-relief centers.
The Romney campaign will also be collecting supplies at its offices in North Carolina, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania.
As a campaign stop in Ohio, Romney said, "I know that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast. And our thoughts and prayers are with the people who will find themselves in harm's way."
