Sen. JOE BIDEN
Sen. Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, will have a rally today in downtown Youngstown.
Biden will speak in front of the city-owned 20 Federal Place, the former Phar-Mor Centre.
This will be Biden’s first rally in the Mahoning Valley.
The campaign expects about 1,000 people to attend.
The event is to start around 6:30 p.m.
Those wanting to attend the outdoor event can show up as early as 4 p.m.
The only entrance is at the northeast corner of West Federal and North Phelps streets.
The event is free, but tickets are required.
Tickets are available at Obama’s Campaign for Change offices at 5020 Market St. in Youngstown and at 164 High St. N.E. in Warren today from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Because of time needed to prepare, West Federal between Phelps and Market streets will be closed, beginning at 5 a.m. today.
