Barack Obama, Tim Kaine to campaign in Florida for Hillary Clinton this weekend


Tim Kaine is coming back to Florida.

The Democratic vice presidential nominee is scheduled to travel back to the Sunshine State on Friday and Saturday, according to the Hillary Clinton campaign. His two-day swing coincides with the final weekend of early voting.

Kaine, a Virginia senator, is scheduled to hold a public event in Melbourne on Friday. He’ll then travel to Fort Myers, where he’s expected to hold a public event on Saturday.

The Clinton campaign also announced Tuesday President Barack Obama will travel to Florida on Sunday.  According to the campaign, Obama will attend a public get-out-the vote event in the Orlando area. The trip will come just days after Obama is scheduled to campaign for Clinton in Jacksonville.

No additional details for either event were available Tuesday.
