President Biden to Tour Storm-damaged Florida

He will also meet with Florida's governor

President Joe Biden will travel to Florida on Wednesday and pledge support to help the state recover from the Hurricane Ian during a visit that includes a meeting with Governor Ron DeSantis, a possible rival in the 2024 presidential race.

The Democratic president and the Republican governor are at odds over scores of issues, including climate change, which experts blame for Florida's increasingly wet, windy and intense hurricanes.
