The event is free and open to the public but tickets must be secured in advance.

Tickets will be distributed to the general public on Monday, Oct. 13 beginning at 3 p.m. at 908 Wood Ave., Bridgeport, and 2484 East Main St., Bridgeport.

One ticket per person will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited space, only a limited number of tickets will be distributed.

 

State Democrats sponsoring event

The Connecticut Democratic Party is coordinating the event for Malloy, a Democrat who is seeking a second term. Recent polls have shown a close race between Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley.

Expected to be in attendance are Obama, Malloy, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch, and other state and local elected officials and community leaders.

“I’m thrilled that President Obama and Governor Malloy have chosen to hold a rally in our state’s largest city,” said Finch, who also is a Democrat.
