Obama headed to Orlando on Thursday



President Obama will make a campaign visit to Orlando on Thursday.

No details were given by the campaign. We'll update when we get them. He's also traveling next week to Ohio and Virginia "to lay out his vision to rebuild the economy from the middle out, cut taxes for middle-class families and reduce the country’s deficit."

Obama canceled a stop in Orlando a week ago today due to the shootings in Colorado.

The RNC had this to offer: “It’s insulting to the people of Florida who are facing over 8% unemployment that our president hasn’t met with his jobs council for 192 days, and continues to insult business owners with failed policies that rely on government – instead of the people – to get our economy back on track.  Florida deserves better than the Obama record of sky high foreclosures and joblessness, high taxes, excessive regulations, and overreaching government.”
