In what's billed as a "grass roots event," President Barack Obama will take his case for re-election to the public Thursday during an appearance at the University of Miami.
Campaign staffers said Obama will speak about his plans for the economy, including job creation, and emphasize the contrast between him and his Republican opponent Mitt Romney.
The event will be at BankUnited Center, 1245 Dauer Drive, at UM's Coral Gables campus. Tickets are free, and available on a first come, first served basis. Those interested in attending may go to fl.barackobama.com/see-president-obama-in-miami to sign in and get the nearest location of ticket distributors. Doors open at 1 p.m., and parking is limited.
Also, Tuesday is the last day to register to vote in Florida for those who want to cast a ballot in the Nov. 6 election. More information is available at area supervisors of elections offices: in Broward County at browardsoe.org or 954-357-7050; in Palm Beach County at pbcelections.org or 561-656-6200; or in Miami-Dade County at miamidade.gov/elections or 305-499-8683.
