MILWAUKEE- Superstorm Sandy is keeping President Obama from making a campaign stop in Green Bay Tuesday.  Also, Mitt Romney canceled his event at State Fair Park Monday due to the storm along the East Coast.

Democratic State Party Chair Mike Tate believes voters will understand why the president can't make his scheduled visit.

"The president has a job to do and that is be President of the United States."

Tate believes the president is doing the right thing by staying in Washington D.C. and monitoring the effects of this storm.

"The president's got a day job making sure the people of the East Coast are safe and secure."

Sen. Ron Johnson says both candidates are making the right decision.

"I think it's the appropriate response," says Johnson.  "It's during these times that Americans really do come together."

Senator Johnson says he has people along the East Coast on his mind.

"We all hope the damage isn't too severe."
