WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is heading to South Florida to raise money for the Democratic Party as it gears up for the campaign to succeed him.

Obama was headlining a pair of fundraisers Wednesday at private homes in Miami.

The Democratic National Committee says about 30 supporters, contributing up to $33,400 apiece, are expected at the first event.

About 60 people, also contributing up to $33,400 are expected at the second event.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are seeking the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

Before returning to Washington, Obama will get a briefing Thursday at the National Hurricane Center, also in Miami, on the annual hurricane season that begins next week.
