The Romney campaign is reportedly using at least one of its campaign buses to provide supplies and relief for those who are likely to be hit by Hurricane Sandy in the coming days.

Having canceled campaign events in the area, Romney spokespeople are saying the bus will be used to transport donations of basic supplies to those in need.

"Bring donations to VA Victory offices. Romney bus will deliver them to those affected by #Sandy. #RomneyRyan2012," Curt Cashour, Romney's Virginia communications director, tweeted.

ABC's Emily Friedman added: "Romney campaign will load storm relief supplies into Romney bus in Arlington Va today an will collect supplies at all VA victory offices."

Conservative-leaning sites are describing the move as a "true example of leadership," though the more politically cynical could interpret the move as a shrewd campaign strategy to shake off Romney's "elitist" image.

Twitchy, which helped publicize the story by aggregating tweets on the subject, concluded: "Kudos, Team Romney, for stepping up immediately to try to aid those in harm’s way."

President Obama has also promised to help those affected by the storm, saying the federal government will not get "bogged down" by "rules" and "red tape" in providing local officials everything they need to manage the crisis.
