President Obama to visit PortMiami


President Barack Obama will visit PortMiami when he comes into town Friday to speak about the economy.

More details of Obama's trip have yet to become available. But it's a high-profile visit for the port, which has been getting a lot of bipartisan attention recently from elected officials. Republican Gov. Rick Scott acknowledged Port Director Bill Johnson during his annual "state of the state" speech earlier this month.

The governor touted the jobs to be created by a port dredging project.
