BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Superstorm Sandy prevented President Barack Obama from campaigning in Colorado this week, but now the president is back on the trail and has Colorado at the top of his list.

Obama headlined an evening rally in the Democratic stronghold of Boulder on Thursday. The president scrapped a rally planned for Tuesday in Colorado Springs so that he could monitor hurricane damage from Washington, D.C.

Obama visited the New Jersey shore on Wednesday and assured victims that cleanup and recovery will continue.

Both campaigns are trying to cram in as many events as they can before polls close Tuesday. Vice President Joe Biden, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan all planned campaign stops in Colorado in the coming days.
