MIAMI (AP) - President Barack Obama is coming to Florida to campaign for Democratic candidates.

Obama is expected in Miami at a Wednesday evening fundraiser for gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink and Senate candidate Kendrick Meek.

Meek is a Miami congressman and is locked in a tough primary battle against billionaire investor Jeff Greene. The winner of Tuesday's primary will face Republican Marco Rubio and Gov. Charlie Crist, who is running as an independent, in November's general election.

Sink will face the winner of the Republican primary between Attorney General Bill McCollum and former hospital executive Rick Scott.
