    RALEIGH (WTVD) — Hundreds of people camped out overnight Tuesday for a chance to be some of the first people in line to get tickets to see President Barack Obama.

    The President will be in the Triangle Wednesday to talk about American Jobs Act he presented to Congress last week.

    He will be speaking at Reynolds Coliseum about “the need for Congress to pass it now and put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of working Americans, while not adding a dime to the deficit,” according to a news release.

    The event is free and open to the public.

    On Monday night, hundreds began lining up at Carter-Finley Stadium and the NC State Brickyard since tickets are being distributed on a first-come, first-served basis Tuesday morning.



    Due to limited event space, the White House said it will only be able to fulfill a limited number of requests for tickets. State students are limited to one ticket per person. Tickets are not for sale or re-sale.
