Obama cross-country 'America Forward!' tour to include Tampa stop



President Obama on Wednesday will begin a "two day, around the clock campaign blitz across six battleground states," the campaign said. The tour includes a stop in Tampa on Thursday.

"On the “America Forward!” tour, the President will rally supporters, meet with volunteers, talk to undecided voters and cast his own ballot in this election," according to a news release.

"After leaving Iowa on Wednesday, October 24, the President will rally voters in Denver, Colorado at the Meadow at City Park, followed by a late night grassroots event in Las Vegas, Nevada. The President will travel overnight to Tampa, Florida for a grassroots rally, and a tarmac event in Richmond, Virginia on Thursday. As the President crisscrosses the nation, he will spend time on Air Force One calling undecided voters, rallying National Team Leaders and volunteers and continuously engaging with Americans across the country about the choice in this election."
