Monday, August 15th, 2011 at 8:35 am

President Obama will begin a 3-day bus tour with his first stop in the small Minnesota town of Cannon Falls. The town is home to about 4,000 people and is located just south of the Twin Cities.

The president is scheduled to host a town hall-style meeting this morning about the economy and jobs.

On Sunday afternoon, White House staff members handed out 500 tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis. People showed up in numbers, from all over the state, waiting for what many were calling a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
