Meek, Wasserman Schultz on Air Force One

Is there a better way to get to a presidential town hall meeting than on Air Force One? U.S. Reps. Kendrick Meek of Miami, Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, Kathy Castor of Tampa and Alan Grayson of Orlando are getting a ride today with President Barack Obama to Tampa.

Waiting for Obama on the tarmac will be Gov. Charlie Crist, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.

Before heading over to the town hall meeting, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are scheduled to tour a maintenance hangar and greet crew members working on a KC-135 Stratotanker that has been refueling planes flying aid to Haiti.
