President Obama to speak at Rhode Island College


For Rhode Island Republicans, this Halloween might be especially spooky.

On Friday, October 31, President Obama will give a speech at Rhode Island College focused on the economy. He had previously been scheduled to speak on October 16 but canceled his visit “so he could continue to monitor the government’s response to the Ebola outbreak,” according to WPRI.

Barack isn’t the only Obama in the Ocean State this week, as First Lady Michelle Obama plans to head a rally for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gina Raimondo at the Juanita Sanchez School in Providence tomorrow.

Tickets for the general public go on sale today at 4 pm at the Rhode Island College Recreation Center (600 Mt. Pleasant Avenue, Providence). They are free of charge and will be disbursed on a first come, first serve basis…meaning the second you read this, you should probably hop on the #92 RIPTA and head on over.

You’ll have to be early for the speech, too, as the doors open at 7:30 am on Saturday. Obama’s remarks are slated to begin at 11:10 am. You can dress up as a hungover college student for Halloween that morning.
