President Barack Obama will visit Florida on Wednesday for a speech on the Affordable Care Act in Tampa and to campaign for Hillary Clinton in Miami.

 

Obama is scheduled to give a midday speech on the health care law at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

 

He’ll then head to Miami, where he will headline a fundraiser for the Democratic Governors Association and attend a Clinton campaign event. Clinton campaigned in Fort Pierce and in Coral Springs on Friday.

 

The Clinton campaign says the Obama event will take place in the afternoon, but has not yet announced a specific time and place. Members of the public can RSVP for the Miami event here.

 

Obama carried Florida by 0.9 percent in 2012 and polls show a tight 2016 race in the state between Clinton and Donald Trump.
