Obama-Biden headed to Tampa Bay Jan. 28



A day after the State of the Union address, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will travel to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area for an event.

"More details on the visit will be announced soon," a White House spokeswoman said. She declined to say what it would entail or if it had anything to do with Florida's application for $2.5 billion in high-speed rail funding, a line that would run from Orlando to Tampa.

Obama was last in Florida in late October, when he visited the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, raised money for Democrats in Miami and toured Florida Power & Light's new solar power plant in Arcadia. Previous coverage here.
