Life at Political Ground Zero

President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Governor Mitt Romney will be visiting the University of Miami on Wednesday, September 19th (Governor Romney) and Thursday, September 20th (President Obama) as special guests of Univision broadcasts entitled: “El Gran Encuentro con el Gobernador Mitt Romney” and “El Gran Encuentro con el Presidente Barack Obama.”

These two special programs – scheduled to take place in the BankUnited Center Fieldhouse – will be conversations with the candidates. While all questions will be posed in Spanish, they will be answered in English by the candidates and translated to Spanish where necessary. The events will be taped by Univision and will be aired later each day. The start time for each event has not yet been finalized.

Tickets for these two events will be very limited. Per our agreement with the two presidential campaigns and Univision, UM Young & College Democrats and certain affiliated organizations will have initial access to the student tickets for President Obama’s event. Similarly, UM College Republicans and certain affiliated organizations will have initial access to the student tickets for Governor Romney’s event.

Remaining student tickets will be distributed via a lottery system.

There are no tickets available for faculty or staff.

Shame about the last part, though.
