Obama's stop for Clinton will be in Miami Gardens

@PatriciaMazzei   

Hillary Clinton's campaign confirmed Monday that President Barack Obama's rally on her behalf Thursday will take place in Miami Gardens, just like it had been before Hurricane Matthew forced organizers to postpone it earlier this month.

His appearance was originally intended to highlight Florida's voter-registration deadline. But since the Tuesday deadline will have elapsed by the time Obama arrives, now he's going to talk up the start of early voting in Miami-Dade, Broward and other large counties next Monday.

"With more people voting in this election than any in history, President Obama will urge Florida voters to take advantage of in-person early voting, which begins on Monday, October 24 in South Florida," the campaign said.

The "organizing event" will take place at 3 p.m. Thursday at the arena of Florida Memorial University. Tickets for the public are available online. They are also available at Clinton offices in Liberty City (675 NW 62nd St.), Wynwood (2215 NW 1st Pl.) and Opa-locka (4773 NW 183rd St.).

Obama is also scheduled to deliver a speech on the Affordable Care Act the same day in Miami Dade College.
