President Obama Will Be In Miami Today: Here's His Full Itinerary

South Florida is a favorite piggy bank of politicians of both parties, and it's no surprise that Barack Obama is making yet another fundraising trip to Miami today as he sets the groundwork for his re-election campaign. The president will make multiple stops in Miami before spending the night and then hopping a flight to Puerto Rico tomorrow. Here's his full itinerary (so you know which roads to avoid).

Obama is scheduled to begin his day in Raleigh, Carolina. Air Force One will arrive at Miami International Airport around 4:45 p.m.

According to his official itinerary, at 5:50 the president will deliver remarks at a private residence for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser. It appears to be at the home of former Samsonite CEO Steven Green and his wife Dorothea, and tickets went for $10,000 apiece.

Obama will then travel to the Arsht Center for the "Obama Victory Fund 2012 Kick-Off Reception with the President," where he is scheduled to speak at 7:20. General admission for that event started at $250.

CBS Miami reports that Obama will also attend a dinner at the home of Dr. J.P. and Maggie Austin. That's a $35,800-a-plate event.

The president will then spend the night in Miami before departing for Puerto Rico in the morning.
