Obama goes to FEMA before visit to storm-racked NJ
Wednesday - 10/31/2012, 10:31am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Obama is paying a visit to Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters ahead of his trip to New Jersey to see the damage done by superstorm Sandy.
Obama took a motorcade to FEMA's offices to meet with agency chiefs before a planned flight to Atlantic City, N.J., to meet with Sandy's victims and relief workers.
Days before the election, the president has kept up a steady public presence overseeing the storm response, while canceling a series of public campaign rallies.
It was Obama's second visit in four days. On Sunday, he met with FEMA officials, then told reporters the government will "respond big and respond fast" after the massive storm made landfall.
