Romney campaign in Virginia collecting storm relief donations

Stephanie Steinberg,

WASHINGTON – Romney campaign offices across Virginia are collecting emergency supplies in preparation for Hurricane Sandy.

The offices are accepting supplies that will be distributed to storm relief centers in Virginia. Requested donations include:

  • Bottled water
  • Non-perishable food items such as beef jerky, granola bars and peanut butter

The Romney campaign says it postponed all Sunday campaign events in Virginia as a cautionary move to ensure emergency personnel could focus on other storm-related issues.

The Obama campaign also postponed events on Sunday. The campaign is monitoring the storm to determine whether to cancel a rally with Obama and former President Bill Clinton in Prince William County on Monday.

WTOP is waiting to hear back from the Obama campaign about accepting storm relief supplies.
