President Obama sure loves hitting up Miami for fundraisers. POTUS has been in the area several times since his election for numerous cash raising soirees (including one at the Estefan household) and will be back in town March 4 to attend a fundraiser for Democratic Senate candidates as well as to advance his agenda for the next year.
The White House says he'll be in town "to discuss his plan for winning the future." Which means more than likely he'll be holding some sort of semi-public event to discuss many of the same themes he went over in his State of the Union address. Though no details have been released besides that.
He'll also attend a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Florida's Democratic Senator Bill Nelson is seen as one of the most vulnerable senators up for re-election in 2012. Though only Jeb Bush (who is almost certainly not running) is the only Republican polling ahead of him, the fact Nelson can't poll more than 50 percent against any candidate at the moment shows he's vulnerable. He'll likely be a top recipient of DSCC cash during the next election cycle.
