Details on President Obama visit to Charlottesville
President Barack Obama comes to Charlottesville tomorrow to stump for Congressman Tom Perriello‘s re-election bid. Unlike the President’s invitation only event in Richmond a few weeks ago, this event is open to the public on a first come, first serve basis.
If you are interested in attending here are the details:
A Rally with President Obama
Charlottesville Pavilion on the Downtown Mall
Doors open at 5:00 PM
The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required.
Public entrance is between 5th and 6th Streets NE, on the Downtown Mall.
All attendees will go through airport-like security and should bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, umbrellas, liquids, or signs will be allowed in the venue. Cameras are permitted.
I will be there reporting live for NBC12 starting at 4pm. I’ll try to post interesting tid-bits here on Decision Virginia, but I am sure my twitter feed will be busy. If you aren’t following me now, join the thousands who already are! Twitter.com/ryanobles.
Meanwhile the Richmond Tea Party is planning a counter rally to the President’s rally. The details for that event can be found on their website by clicking here.
State Senator Robert Hurt, Perriello’s opponent will be pretty far away from Charlottesville. He is hosting a small business round table in Martinsville.
