Former president Bill Clinton to speak at FIU on Tuesday, but you’ll need a ticket


Tickets for the Clinton event will be distributed starting at 4 p.m. Sunday.

Fresh from his well-received speech at the Democratic National Convention, former president Bill Clinton will campaign in Miami-Dade on Tuesday for President Barack Obama.

Clinton will address the crowd on what is at stake in this election for Floridians.

The free event— hosted by Organizing for America-Florida — will be at 5:30 p.m. at FIU’s main campus at 11200 SW Eighth St. in west Miami-Dade. The exact location on campus has not been released.

But those wishing to attend must obtain a free ticket. Sunday afternoon, long lines had already formed and it was unclear how many tickers were available.

One ticket per person will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 4 p.m. Sunday at the following two locations.

•  OFA-Pinecrest Field Office

11315 S. Dixie Highway

•  OFA-Hialeah Field Office

419 W. 49th St., Suite 105
