The presidential motorcade arrived at the University of North Florida campus at about 3:03 p.m.

At 3:28 p.m. President Obama entered a gymnasium that serves as an overflow area for the main event, to deafening, decibel-needle meter toppling cheers. No official crowd count, but I'd estimate about 800 to 1,000 people in the overflow area. The setting was sparse - a microphone, a U.S. flag, and a television screen.

"I'm so sorry that we can't fit everybody in, but I just wanted to come by and say thank you. Thank you. I'm proud of all of you. I'm so grateful for everything you've done to support me. But we have a couple guys with the Trump," he said, apparently referring to people in the audience.

When the crowd booed, he skipped quickly through the "Don't boo, vote" routine, saying he knew the people there had voted. "I want you to talk to you cousin your neighbors your friends, folks at the barber shop, the beauty shop."

Heading to the main event, where President Obama is being introduced by Jesse Ann Braughton.

Remarks are open press.
