House party time: Obama, Nan Rich visit same Miami Zip code later todayby George Bennett | March 20th, 2014
Things will be hopping in the village of Pinecrest near Miami later today when Democratic governor candidate Nan Rich visits a “Stand With Nan” house party and President Barack Obama swoops in to attend a $16,200-a-head fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning‘s house.
Rich’s event and the DCCC fundraiser are 1.2 miles apart.
Rich’s main rival for the Democratic nomination, former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, is expected to join Obama during his visit today, though it’s unclear whether he’ll be at the DCCC event near Rich. Obama is also dropping in on a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at an undisclosed location in the Miami area.
“It’s well known that the President and Governor Crist are personal friends. He enjoys spending time with him – will today, and will in the future,” Crist spokesman Kevin Cate said.
