GOP stalwart Haley Barbour argued Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Hurricane Sandy worked to President Obama's political benefit in the election.
"The hurricane is what broke Romney's momentum," he said. "I don't think there's any question about it."
"Any day that the news media is not talking about jobs and the economy, taxes and the economy, deficits and debt, Obamacare and energy, is a good day for Barack Obama. You had a blackout on all of those issues that started about last Saturday and lasted until about yesterday -- that is what really was good for Barack Obama. Now whether it was good enough remains to be seen."
