ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — President Barack Obama is cancelling more campaign events to monitor Hurricane Sandy back in Washington.

The latest political event to get scrapped as the storm heads to the East Coast is the president's trip to Green Bay, Wis., Tuesday.

The White House announced Obama was canceling that trip as Air Force One was en route to Washington from Florida Monday morning. The president decided not to attend a noon rally in Orlando Monday so that Air Force One could get safely back to Washington.
