MIAMI BEACH, Florida (AP) - President Barack Obama is headed back to South Florida to raise money for his re-election campaign.

The president is scheduled Tuesday to attend a late afternoon private fundraiser at the Miami Beach home of TracFone Wireless Inc. CEO F.J. Pollak and his wife, Abigail.

After that it's on to a larger event at the Fillmore Miami Beach that features entertainment by salsa star Marc Anthony. The singer says he's hoping to rally support for Obama among Hispanics.

The events come just days after Obama appeared at fundraisers in Tampa and Orlando.

Florida is considered one of the key swing states in the November election between Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. It's also a key source of cash for both campaigns.
