President Obama spent last night at the Holiday Inn in Auburn, after speaking at Henninger High School in Syracuse earlier in the evening. Some people working out at the Auburn YMCA this morning have a story to tell their friends after Mr. Obama joined them for a quick workout. The President has returned to the Holiday Inn. Meanwhile, officials at the Seward House and Harriet Tubman Home are preparing for possible presidential visits. Members of the public are gathering outside both locations, hoping for a glimpse of the President before he goes on to Binghamton and Scranton, Pennsylvania later today.

Finger Lakes News Radio's Joe Salzone will provide us with coverage of the President's visit to Auburn throughout the day.
