Crowd awaits day two of Obama’s Florida swingby George Bennett | September 9th, 2012
MELBOURNE — The gym at the Florida Institute of Technology is filling up and there’s a long line outside as President Obama prepares for day two of a campaign swing through Florida that will bring him to the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach this afternoon.
Obama campaigned Saturday along the fabled Interstate 4 corridor. He was joined in Pinellas County by former Gov. Charlie Crist, the Republican-turned-independent who’s rumored to be mulling a 2014 bid for governor as a Democrat and spoke at last week’s Democratic convention. Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson also joined Obama in Central Florida on Saturday.
