TERRE HAUTE -- Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama's Indiana campaign announced Thursday he will pay a visit to Terre Haute Saturday.

Obama will conduct a "Change We Need," discussion with attendees at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds, 3901 United States 41, Terre Haute.

The event is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m., Saturday.

Sen. Obama (D-Ill.) will outline plans to jumpstart the economy, provide middle class relief and how to get America moving in the right direction.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets will be required.

Free tickets will be available beginning at 9 a.m., Friday, at Obama's campaign office in Terre Haute, 509 Wabash Ave., Terre Haute. Adults will be limited to two tickets per person and children under 16 may pick up one ticket.
