Obama:Hurricane More Important Than Election

President Obama discusses efforts underway to prepare for Hurricane Sandy and urges those who may be affected by the storm to take all needed precautions.

Q What about the impact on the election, sir?

THE PRESIDENT: I am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. I'm worried about the impact on families, and I'm worried about the impact on our first responders. I'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation.

The election will take care of itself next week. Right now, our number-one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives, that our search-and-rescue teams are going to be in place, that people are going to get the food, the water, the shelter that they need in case of emergency, and that we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track.
