President Barack Obama visiting Orlando Tuesday to raise money and promote jobs bill

ORLANDO, Fla. -- President Obama — who currently has a higher disapproval rating in Florida than popularity-challenged Gov. Rick Scott — will stop in Orlando Tuesday for a pair of fundraising events.

He'll also reportedly meet with unemployed construction workers to discuss the American Jobs Act.

Obama will attend one money event at a downtown Orlando hotel, then head to a second fundraiser at the home of attorney John Morgan — whose firm recently hired former Gov. Charlie Crist.

The host committee for Morgan's event includes NBA veteran Grant Hill, basketball Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and former baseball great Ken Griffey Jr.
