President Bush to Speak at World Arena

By  | 

It's the hottest ticket in town... And it's free. The Republican Party was handing out tickets to see President Bush during his visit to Colorado Springs at the World Arena. The President will be in town Tuesday morning.

People started lining up before 6:00 Thursday morning, excited to see the President. The line wrapped down an entire block, and even around the corner at times Thursday morning. President Bush supporters say it's worth the wait to see him in person.

Those in line could pick up tickets for themselves and their family with only a picture I.D. But, volunteers did screen people, wanting to give tickets to supporters or people interested in hearing about the President's platform.

Organizers were thrilled at Thursday's turnout. There were 10,000 tickets available Thursday morning. They are now all gone.
