Friday Morning Political Headines: Obama visit to Orlando Coverage

In Uncategorized on August 3, 2012 at 1:17 pm

President Barack Obama visited Orlando yesterday to activate his base and kick off his re-election efforts in the biggest political battleground in the country.

He talked about the economy and accused his opponent, Republican nominee Mitt Romney of fairy dust, trickle down economics that would hurt voters in the future. He stopped in at a local restaurant to meet and greet with supporters before taking off to Virgina to try to swing the state in his favor there.

20 miles down I4 in Lake Mary, former President Bill Clinton was the special guest at a big-dollar fundraiser a short time after.

Earlier in the day, Florida Senator and Mitt Romney surrogate Marco Rubio rallied the troops at a rally of his own.
