Obama cancels trip to Maine

President Obama has canceled a planned visit to Portland, Me. in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. on Friday morning that left 27 people dead, 20 of them children.

The president was planning to champion his "fiscal cliff" plan in a speech at the University of Southern Maine next Wednesday, part of an effort to involve supporters around the country in the budget fight.
