WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is arguing that women need better educational opportunities as he raises political money in Florida.

Obama has been focusing on women's economic issues in this midterm election year and plans to focus on higher education in a visit Thursday to Orlando's Valencia College.

Democrats are hoping that women will turn out in support of their candidates in November and say Obama's economic message appeals to them.

Florida has one of the country's most competitive gubernatorial races. Obama also plans to raise money for Democrats at two evening fundraisers in Miami.

Obama is hosting a Working Families Summit this summer. The Valencia visit kicks off the first regional forum planned before the summit, with future events in Denver, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and New York.
