Biden cancels Ohio and Pennsylvania events

The announcement came shortly after Biden finished a campaign rally in Youngstown, Ohio.

Obama canceled a Florida event Monday morning and events Tuesday in order to monitor the storm from Washington. Shortly after, the Mitt Romney campaign also scrapped events for late Monday and all of Tuesday.

Both campaigns canceled events in New Hampshire and Virginia slated for the weekend, saying they did not want to divert emergency personnel from preparations for the looming storm.
