UNO officials say there are no more public tickets available for President Barack Obamah's speech at Baxter Arena on Wednesday.

Tickets for the free and public event were made available Sunday at three Omaha locations: Metro Community College, Baxter Arena and The Salvation Army Kroc Center.

Those in line at Baxter Arena said it was worth waiting in the cold.

"I think it means that he cares about the Midwest and I think he cares about everyone, the middle class and Americana, and we count ourselves in that and we support out president," said one person in line Sunday.

The visit is part of the president's tradition of traveling after delivering the State of the Union address.  That is scheduled for Tuesday at 8 p.m.
