Hurricane Sandy, bearing a dangerous "October Surprise," shredded candidates' endgame plans for next week's toss-up US election, in a new test of nerve for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

The US President and his Republican rival dumped planned rallies in swing states in the path of the monster storm, upending strategies months in the making designed to eke out every last vote a week from election day.

As Sandy's advance bands soaked Washington, Obama left for Florida to campaign with ex-president Bill Clinton today, but postponed events in Virginia, Ohio and Colorado to manage the storm back at the White House.
