WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Joe Biden will make a campaign fundraising swing through South Florida on Tuesday that includes a stop in Palm Beach County.
On Monday night, the White House announced he "will participate in a campaign reception in Jupiter" at an undisclosed location at 2 p.m. after arriving at Palm Beach International Airport at 12:15 p.m.
Biden will return to the airport at 3:25 p.m. and fly to Miami International Airport for another campaign reception in Miami at 6:45 p.m.
At 8:05 p.m., the president will depart from the Miami airport to return to the White House
An original release from the White House on Friday said the reception was in Palm Beach.
The Federal Aviation Administration will have flight restrictions in place when Air Force One is near the airport.
Details on the Palm Beach County visit are being kept tightly quiet, but it is likely to be a pricey event.
"The fact that President Biden is coming to Palm Beach tells you that he is serious about raising enough money to counter Donald Trump and the MAGA movement," Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg, a Democrat, said.
"There's not a politician in America that can't run a campaign without coming to Palm Beach," Peter Feaman, a Florida member of the Republican National Committee, said. "[It is the] No. 1 fundraising mecca for both Republicans and Democrats."
Palm Beach island is home for former President Donald Trump, which may be another reason for Biden's visit.
"Florida has long had deep pockets for donations to favorite politicians," Susan MacManus, a political science professor emeritus at the University of South Florida, said.
MacManus points out that Democrats face a tough challenge in Florida now that Republicans hold a sizable edge in voter registration.
"The fact that he's chosen South Florida as the epicenter of his beginning campaign to go to has got to be a real shot in the arm for South Florida Democrats," she said.
