President Barack Obama is going to be in town Thursday afternoon for a campaign event, and one in Pueblo on Thursday morning. Entrance is free for both events. Here in Colorado Springs, the president will be at the Cutler Quad, at Colorado College, and doors open at 11 a.m.
Before that, in Pueblo, the president will be at the Palace of Agriculture at the Colorado State Fairgrounds, and doors for that event open at 8:30 a.m.
Tickets for both events, however, are available today, starting at 5 p.m. They’re strictly one per person, will be handed out on a first-come first-served basis, and have to be picked up in person.
In a statement, the Obama campaign said, “The President will discuss his plan to restore middle-class security by paying down our debt in a balanced way that ensures everyone pays their fair share and still invests in the things we need to create jobs and grow our economy over the long term, like education, energy, innovation, and infrastructure.
“The President will also repeat his call for Congress to act now to give middle-class families some certainty by preventing a scheduled tax increase on 98 percent of Americans, including families across Colorado.”
