This Thursday, President Barack Obama will be holding a "grassroots event" on the Cutler Quad at Colorado College, according to a press release from his Colorado campaign headquarters.
Tickets for the event will become available Monday evening (tonight) at 5 o'clock, and while the event itself is free, you'll still need a ticket to get in.
According to the press release, the president's stump speech will include:
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. During his first term, President Obama has already cut taxes for a typical Colorado family by about $3,900. This has helped families in Colorado afford to send their children to college, buy their first home, pay for health care and child care.
The Obama campaign's Colorado spokeswoman says that she can't provide a number of the available tickets, so you might not wanna put off getting your tickets from one of these locations:
Worner Campus Center
902 N Cascade Ave
Colorado Springs, CO 80903

Doors for the event will open at 11 in the morning, with the president taking the stage around 1:55.
