President Obama to campaign for Clinton in Miami Gardens on Thursday



President Obama's first campaign trip to Florida will happen in Miami Gardens on Thursday. The visit had been announced last week but a location and time was not set.

The Clinton campaign said the event will be at Florida Memorial University and begins at 3 p.m.

"President Obama will lay out the high stakes of November's election for Florida families and highlight Clinton's vision for an America that is stronger together, with an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top," according to a release. "With more people voting in this election than any in history, President Obama will urge Florida voters to take advantage of in-person early voting, which begins on Monday, October 24 in South Florida."

Obama will also give an official health care speech at Miami Dade College. The Florida visit was scheduled for earlier this month but got upended by Hurricane Matthew.
