President Obama stressed "trust"  Saturday in Mentor, Ohio, and subtly invoked super storm Sandy in his first event of the three-day sprint toward Election Day.

“You don’t know what kinds of emergencies may happen, you don’t know what problems he or she may deal with. But you want to be able to trust your president," Obama said to a crowd of about 4,000 at a high school gymnasium.



Obama has events in Milwaukee, Dubuque, Iowa and Bristow, Va., later Saturday. 

President Obama held a campaign event in Mentor, Ohio on Saturday, and stressed that he knows "what real change looks like."
