Romney Campaigns While Thinking Of Storm Victims [VIDEO]

Mitt Romney is vowing to deliver “real change” in Washington, instead of just talking about it.

He’s back on the campaign trail today in Florida, where he spoke to about 2,000 supporters at an airport hangar in Tampa.

Despite Romney’s indirect criticism of President Barack Obama, he didn’t use Obama’s name in his remarks. He’s looking to soften his tone, as Obama takes another day off from campaigning to tour the storm-ravaged New Jersey coast with Gov. Chris Christie.

Romney encouraged Floridians to donate “a dollar or two” to help storm victims. He said, “We want to make sure that they have a speedy and quick recovery.”

Romney is attending three rallies across Florida today, a day after canceling some events. A rally in Ohio yesterday was redesigned as an event to promote relief for hurricane survivors.

And aides say that as much of the country remains focused on the aftermath of the storm, the political balancing act isn’t over.

They also report that their internal polling offers a better outlook for Romney than does recent public polling that gives Obama an edge in some swing states. But they concede that the distraction from the storm has frozen any momentum Romney had coming out of this month’s debates.
