Mitt Romney has canceled plans to campaign in New Hampshire this week because of the storm bearing down on the East Coast.
It's the second major schedule change for the Republican presidential candidate with the election just nine days away. Romney campaigned in Ohio on Sunday instead of Virginia as planned.
He told supporters at the University of Findlay that, quote, "our thoughts and prayers are with people who will find themselves in harm's way."
President Barack Obama has also changed his campaign schedule for the coming days. The election is Nov. 6 and early voting is already underway in several states.
Romney was supposed to campaign in New Hampshire on Tuesday. He last held an event there on Sept. 7.
The campaign also canceled a Monday appearance set for Romney's wife, Ann.
