WASHINGTON
President Barack Obama is playing a round of golf on his 51st birthday, kicking off a quiet birthday weekend away from re-election campaigning.

Obama was playing golf at Andrews Air Force Base on Saturday before heading to Camp David, the private presidential retreat in Maryland’s Catoctin (kuh-TAHK’-tin) Mountains.

Obama got some early birthday wishes on Thursday during a campaign rally in Florida, where supporters sang “Happy Birthday” to the president.

Obama joked that his birthday wishes “probably would have to do with electoral votes. Winning Florida wouldn’t be a bad birthday present.”

The president returns to campaigning next week with fundraisers in Connecticut and rallies in Colorado.
