Obama Heads To Orlando For Travel Speech

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — President Obama is headed to the heart of Florida’s tourism industry to announce a new travel proposal.

Obama heads to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Thursday to make the announcement.

His Florida visit comes 10 days before Sunshine State Republicans are set to vote in a presidential primary.

Obama carried Florida in 2008 against Republican John McCain, 51 percent to 48 percent. And, for now, Florida voters don’t seem to be abandoning Obama in droves.

A recent Quinnipiac University poll showed the president and GOP front-runner Mitt Romney in a near-statistical tie in the state in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup.
