Tickets go out for Marco Rubio announcement, to take place at 5:30 p.m. Monday


Organizers of Republican Marco Rubio's expected presidential campaign launch Monday said they're emailing tickets Wednesday to some of the people who signed up online to attend the 5:30 p.m. event at downtown Miami's Freedom Tower. 

From the news release:

Doors will open at the Freedom Tower for Marco Rubio’s big announcement at 4pm and close at 5pm on Monday, April 13. Nobody will be permitted inside the building after 5:15 pm, and the program is expected to begin at approximately 5:30pm.

People who requested tickets at will begin receiving tickets today via email. Due to very strong demand, not everybody who applied for a ticket will receive one. However, in order to accommodate as many people as possible, there will be an overflow viewing area in the parking lot on the southeast corner of NE 6th Street and Biscayne Boulevard.

We will continue to accept ticket requests until noon Friday at Supporters may also enter a contest at to win a trip to Miami for the announcement. (See website for full contest rules.)

Media wishing to cover this event must RSVP to [email protected] no later than 5pm Friday, April 10. Stand-up locations and truck parking will be available outside the Freedom Tower, however, due to space restrictions, a network pool for Marco’s remarks – to be distributed to the networks and their affiliates and clients – has been mandated.

Limited event parking is available in the parking lot on NE 5th Street, between NE 2nd Ave and Biscayne Blvd., and in the parking garage at NE 5th Street between NE 1st Ave. and NE 2nd Ave. To avoid anticipated traffic and parking issues, all attendees are strongly encouraged to carpool or take public transportation to the event.
