Obama, Clinton Campaigning in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton will both be in Florida today after avoiding the state since last fall.

Obama is seeking to mend fences in a key general election state snubbed by the Democratic National Committee. Clinton is continuing her push to have the state's primary count and its delegates seated at the party's national convention in Denver in August.

The DNC stripped Florida of its delegates in September because its primary was held before Feb. 5. Both candidates signed a pledge nine months ago that kept them from campaigning here before the Jan. 29 primary.

Obama will begin his three-day swing with a rally in Tampa. Clinton plans to hold events in three South Florida counties.
