Obama inicia una gira de dos días en Florida



South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

He'll be campaigning among some of the most die-hard Democrats in South Florida. But President Barack Obama will be going to bed Thursday in the midst of some of our area's richest and most Republican residents.

The president's two-day Florida campaign swing this week will have him meeting and greeting voters at the retiree-filled Century Village condominium community west of West Palm Beach. It doesn't get much more Democratic than Century Village, where just 20 percent of registered voters are Republicans and Obama won 69 percent of the vote in 2008.

Later Thursday, he'll cross the Intracoastal Waterway to spend the night in Manalapan. The tony town is tiny, with just 406 residents, and wealthy. It's also 59 percent Republican and Obama won just 31 percent of the vote there in 2008.

(...) The president also visits Jacksonville on Thursday. On Friday he travels to Fort Myers and Orlando.
