DETROIT (AP) -- Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has canceled a planned overnight stay in Milwaukee to return to his Chicago headquarters and monitor Hurricane Gustav's damage to Gulf Coast states.
The campaign said Monday that Obama may revise his plans to campaign mainly in Pennsylvania and Ohio later this week. He canceled plans to spend Monday night in Milwaukee and to hold a small event there Tuesday morning.
Obama's 16 campaign offices in North Carolina solicited non-perishable goods for Gustav's victims. Other state campaign organizations may do the same, Obama spokesmen said.
