That voting bloc could be key to victory in a close race against President Donald Trump in a pivotal battleground state.

On Tuesday, Biden held a roundtable discussion with veterans in Tampa before marking Hispanic Heritage Month with an event in Kissimmee near Orlando at 6:30 p.m.

Biden's trip comes following Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris' visit last week to Miami-Dade County.
