ORLANDO, Fla. —

Former President Bill Clinton will be campaigning for President Barack Obama in Orlando on Wednesday.

Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden are the Democratic president's chief critics of Republican rival Mitt Romney.

Clinton stars in an Obama campaign ad and was also a star speaker at last week's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Obama is widening the gap between Romney and is ahead by 6 points, according to a new ABC/Washington Post poll, and many political observers credit the Democratic National Convention.

Obama’s Orlando campaign office was packed for the second straight day with people eager to get their hands on a ticket to see Clinton speak at the Rosen Plaza on International Drive.

Tickets were only supposed to be given away on Monday, but after such a high demand, the campaign office released additional tickets.

In the meantime, Obama didn’t campaign Tuesday. He spent the day attending Sept. 11, 2001, ceremonies in Washington, D.C.

Romney spoke at the National Guard Association in Reno, Nev., but said he wouldn't talk normal politics.

“It is, instead, a day to express gratitude to the men and women who have fought and who are still fighting,” he said.

Both candidates also pulled their campaign television ads for the day out of respect.
