Here's how to get free tickets to President Obama's speech at Union Depot on Wednesday
President Barack Obama will deliver remarks at St. Paul's Union Depot around 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon "to announce a new competition encouraging investments to create jobs and restore infrastructure as part of the President's Year of Action," a White House statement says.
POTUS's speech is free and open to the public, and you can get tickets this morning.
Here, directly from the statement, is how to do so:
General Public tickets will be distributed on Monday, February 24, beginning at 10:00 AM in Suite 120 of Union Depot.
One ticket per person will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited space, the White House will only be able to distribute a limited number of tickets.
If you're able to snag one, know that backpacks, banners, bottles, and just about every other sort of personal item is banned from the event, and that attendees will be subjected to "airport-like security."
Obama's visit comes less than a week after Vice President Joe Biden swung through Minneapolis for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at the Bachelor Farmer, the swank downtown restaurant owned by Gov. Mark Dayton's sons.
