Historic event on Monday draws ticket seekers today to Covelli Centre

YOUNGSTOWN

Bonnie Leaming of Austintown was first in line at the Covelli Centre to get a free ticket to see and hear President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton at a rally here Monday afternoon.

An Obama supporter, Leaming, 57, arriving at 7:30 a.m., was among a growing crowd of about 500 by 11 a.m. who gathered in a line winding around the building. She said she likes the president’s truthfulness and his record: “I feel he is somebody we can trust.”

The crowd, a mix of black and white, young and old and ages in between, lined up to get tickets for what many see as a historic event and a rare chance to be in the presence of a sitting president and former president at one time.

About 5,000 to 6,000 tickets will be available for the rally, the first time President Obama and Clinton have campaigned together since the Democratic National Convention, at the Covelli Centre, 229 E. Front St.
