Obama back on campaign trail

Joe's got your update on the US elections

US President, Barack Obama, is back on the election campaign trail after 'super-storm' Sandy.

He had to pause his campaign for re-election because of the massive storm that hit the east coast of America.

On Thursday he will visit the swing states of Nevada, Colorado and Wisconsin.

His Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, also called off his campaigning but started again on Wednesday with a visit to Florida.

Swing states are where people are undecided about who they will vote for in an election. It means both men are working especially hard to win in those states.

People across the US will vote for who they want as their President on Tuesday 6th November.
