President Barack Obama is coming to Orlando on Monday, and he's bringing former President Bill Clinton with him.
But Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will beat them to town, with a rally in Kissimmee on Saturday. He'll be bringing Marco Rubio, Florida's Republican U.S. senator.
The Obama campaign announced its Monday stop, at a location and time yet to be announced, early Thursday morning.
Earlier, the Romney campaign announced he will be at the Ranger Jet Center, 3950 Merlin Drive, in Kissimmee, for a 4:40 p.m. rally Saturday.
Obama, who has seen Romney, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and the Romney family make several visits to Central Florida since the president was last here, is doubling down for the last few days of the 2012 campaign with Clinton.
No details are available yet on the Obama-Clinton visit to Orlando, or on subsequent visits to Youngstown, Ohio, and Prince William County, Virginia.
Romney and Rubio also are planning rallies in Panama City on Saturday morning and in Land O' Lakes on Saturday evening.
The Romney campaign announced that tickets for his appearance will be available on-line through the website, http://www.mittromney.com/FL, and at the campaign's Lakeland, Kissimmee and Orlando-Dr. Phillips Boulevard offices.
The Obama-Clinton rally will be the two presidents' first campaign rally appearances together though the pair were together at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in early September.
It will be the first time Obama has been to Central Florida since his trip through Kissimmee and Melbourne on Sept. 8. Vice President Joe Biden appeared in Orlando last weekend but made only non-public appearances.
Romney was in Daytona Beach last week and Apopka two weeks prior. Ryan joined Romney in Daytona and was at the University of Central Florida on Sept. 23. Ann Romney was in Winter Park Wednesday and in Orlando last Saturday.
