Obama making up for lost time after storm hiatus

(Continued)

The Romney campaign announced a new TV spot criticizing Obama for suggesting the creation of a secretary of business. "His solution to everything is to add another bureaucrat," the ad says, then touts Romney's experience as a businessman as evidence that he would do a better job of improving the economy. The ad doesn't mention that Obama floated the idea of the new post as a way to consolidate nine agencies dealing with business concerns and eliminate bureaucracy.

Obama's return to the campaign begins in Green Bay, Wis., where he'll make up an event that was canceled earlier in the week because of the storm. He also planned rallies in Las Vegas and in Boulder, Colo., a heavily Democratic area. Aides said Obama planned to mention the storm victims in his remarks.

Biden had two events scheduled in Iowa.

More than 19 million people have already voted in the presidential election, either by mail or in person. No votes will be counted until Nov. 6, but some key states are releasing the party affiliation of those who have voted.

Democrats have an edge in votes cast in Florida, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio. Republicans have an advantage in Colorado.
