TAMPA (FOX 13) -

On the heels of Mitt Romney's visit to Florida, President Barack Obama will be in Tampa on Friday afternoon, speaking at a grassroots event at the Dale Mabry campus of Hillsborough Community College.

All the tickets for the event, which opens at 1 p.m., are gone. Within hours of being opened up for grabs they were snatched up.

Before his trip to Tampa, the president will speak to Hispanic leaders in Orlando. Romney was also in Orlando on Thursday.

The president is scheduled to appear at Friday's event around 4 p.m., and traffic will likely be delayed in the Dale Mabry area.
