Mitt Romney Cancels Fundraisers Due To Hurricane Irene

ABC's Emily Friedman (@EmilyABC) reports:

It seems nobody is safe from Hurricane Irene — not even Mitt Romney.

Romney's campaign tells ABC News that the GOP candidate has cancelled three fundraisers this weekend out of an abundance of caution. The campaign says they will all be rescheduled.

Romney had been scheduled to have an event in Martha's Vineyard on Saturday and then one in East Hampton that afternoon. Another in South Hampton was slated for Sunday.

All of these areas are expected to be hit hard by Hurricane Irene.  

Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman's plans to raise some coin this weekend may also been thwarted. The former Utah governor had been planning to hold a fundraiser at the Hamptons home of real estate developer Bill Mack. The event is still on as of now, but his campaign is keeping a close eye on weather reports.
