Obama visits UR

President Barack Obama visited the University of Richmond today, urging support for his $477 billion jobs package before a crowd at the Robins Center estimated by White House officials at 8,900. The address was Obama's first to promote the jobs bill, which he formally announced during a speech last night in Washington.

In addition to urging listeners to contact their representatives in Congress to voice their support for the American Jobs Act, Obama urged students to "hit the books."

Tickets for the event, which was free and open to the public, were snapped up by the thousands inside of two hours yesterday.
