KETTERING, Ohio - US President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney on Tuesday briefly put aside their fierce battle for the White House, as they avoided politics to focus on relief efforts after mammoth storm Sandy left millions of Americans struggling to recover.

With a week left in a deadlocked election race, Obama canceled campaign trips planned for Tuesday and Wednesday to stay in Washington and supervise storm recovery, while Romney held a storm relief event in the swing state of Ohio but ducked most political talk.

The campaign truce was likely to be short-lived.

Romney planned to hit the trail again for rallies in Florida on Wednesday, and Romney's running mate, US Representative Paul Ryan, and Vice President Joe Biden also added new planned campaign stops as the race heads to a tense finish on November 6.
