CINCINNATI - Details have been released regarding President Barack Obama's visit to Cincinnati on Monday, July 16.
The president will hold a campaign event in the Music Hall Ballroom around 2:20 p.m. He will discuss the choice in this election between two fundamentally different visions of how to grow the economy, create middle-class jobs and pay down the debt, according to a release from his campaign office.
Obama will describe his plan to restore the middle class security by paying down our debt in a balanced way that ensures everyone pays their fair share and still invests in the things we need to create jobs and grow our economy over the long term, like education, energy, innovation, and infrastructure.
This event is free and open to the public, however tickets are required. Tickets will be distributed Saturday, July 14, beginning at 11 a.m. at the following locations:

Republican challenger Mitt Romney has also made recent Ohio visits, including a stop in Cincinnati last month.
The swing state figures to be pivotal in the November election.
