Obama speaks to half-empty fundraiser, heckled by AIDS activist in Florida
President Obama’s re-election campaign swept through Florida on Monday. Obama spoke at three fundraisers, including one that was open to the public.

The largest fundraiser had a disappointing turnout. Politico reported that only 980 tickets were sold for the event at the 2,200 seat Adrienne Arsht Center. The upper level of the center was completely empty, the second and third levels only partially full, according to Politico.
