Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton plan to be in Florida on Wednesday, but for very different reasons.
Obama, who plans a rally in Tampa and other events Thursday and Friday, is visiting a crucial battleground for the fall election -- the state that decided the 2000 presidential race. Getting within sight of clinching the Democratic nomination, he is already touring key states for the fall. He was in Missouri and Michigan last week.
Clinton, whose campaign just announced her visit, is trying to get Florida's votes and delegates counted to keep alive her hopes for the nomination. She won the Florida primary in January, but the national Democratic Party is not counting the results because the state went out of turn in the nomination calendar.
