The Obama campaign said Mrs. Obama will tell supporters about whats at stake in this election for Floridians and encourage them to help organize their communities between now and November. The visit comes just two days before Floridians will be inundated with pro-Mitt Romney messages, when the Republican presidential candidate is officially nominated at the partys national convention in Tampa. The First ladys event, which starts at 5:30 p.m., is free and open to the public.
