The Hawk Eye, Burlington, Iowa –
Vice President Joe Biden will visit Burlington Monday, the Obama for America campaign announced Thursday.
The event will be at the Port of Burlington, 400 N. Front St., but the time has yet to be announced.
Doors will open for the event at 1 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public, but tickets will be required to gain entrance.
The campaign for President Barack Obama announced earlier this week Biden would be traveling in the state Monday and Tuesday, but the Burlington event was the only stop for which details have been released.
Biden, Obama and their wives were in the state last week. They made a campaign stop Sept. 7 in Iowa City, following the final day of the Democratic National Convention.
Iowa has been a popular campaign stop for not only Obama and Biden, but their Republican challengers, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, as the state is one of a handful considered a toss-up.
Real Clear Politics, which averages poll results, gives Obama a 0.2 percent lead over Romney in Iowa.
The same site gives Obama a national lead of 3.3 percent.
Biden campaigned Thursday in Wisconsin, another toss-up state, to a crowd of about 3,000 people at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
Because he addressed college students, according to the Associated Press, Biden’s message was aimed at a younger audience.
The OFA campaign’s release did not mention the content of the remarks Biden is expected to make Monday.
Tickets can be picked up after 10 a.m. Saturday on a first-come, first-served basis at Organizing for America offices in Burlington, Fort Madison and Keokuk. One person can pick up one ticket.
If any are left, they’ll be available after 10 a.m. Sunday.
The OFA office in Burlington is located at 900 Osborn St. The Fort Madison office is at 827 Avenue H. The Keokuk office is at 401 Main St.
Tickets also will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Port of Burlington.
