Obama, Biden to visit Tampa Bay area after State of the Union

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will travel to the Tampa Bay area on Jan. 28, a day after Obama delivers his State of the Union Address, according to the St. Petersburg Times' political blog.

"More details on the visit will be announced soon," a White House spokeswoman told the Times. The official declined to say what the visit would entail or if it had anything to do with Florida's application for $2.5 billion in funding for a high-speed rail line that would run from Orlando to Tampa.

Obama was last in Florida in late October, when he made several stops in the state, including at the Florida Power & Light's new solar power plant in Arcadia.
