Pa.'s US Senate candidates suspend campaign events


The campaigns of Republican Tom Smith and Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey said Tuesday that they expected to resume political activities later in the week. Their ads continue to run on TV.

In the meantime, Casey met with volunteers and residents at a Red Cross shelter in Philadelphia and received a briefing on the storm and cleanup efforts from FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. He's also pushing for federal aid to fix the storm damage.

Smith is asking people to donate their time or money to the Red Cross, or to give blood.
