US President Barack Obama, locked in a tight re-election bid, will join one of his top Republican critics on a visit to victims of superstorm Sandy in New Jersey.

Obama will visit New Jersey, the state hardest hit by the storm which devastated much of the northeastern United States, accompanied by Governor Chris Christie.
