President Obama to visit Hillsborough Community College's Dale Mabry campus Friday



We've got details on President Barack Obama's previously reported visit to Tampa:

"On Friday, June 22, President Obama will hold a grassroots event on the Dale Mabry campus of Hillsborough Community College," the campaign says.

"At the event, President Obama will continue to outline how far we’ve come and the clear choice that voters face in this election: whether we continue to move our country forward by creating an economy that’s built to last based on a strong, secure middle class, or go back to the same failed policies that led to the financial crisis that left middle-class Americans struggling to make ends meet. "

A specific time was not given, only "late afternoon." Earlier Friday, Obama will be in Orlando to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials. Mitt Romney will be there Thursday.
