President Obama in Georgia for Fundraiser

ATLANTA (AP) -- President Barack Obama is headed to south Florida after a short trip to Atlanta for a fundraiser.

Air Force One touched down around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and left at 3:12 p.m.

Obama spoke at an event at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel downtown at 1:25 p.m. But first, his motorcade made a quick stop for lunch at a landmark Atlanta restaurant.

"What'll you have?," Obama was greeted with as he walked into The Varsity at the start of the lunch rush.

He ordered five chili dogs, four hotdogs and a cheeseburger for his traveling staff and Mayor Kasim Reed and Reed's mother Sylvia Reed.

The president is on a two-day, four-state campaign trip. He will stop in Miami later Tuesday.
