BOULDER, Colo. — President Barack Obama will be in Colorado Tuesday to deliver a speech at CU Boulder where he will continue his push to extend low-interest rates for student loans.

House Republicans oppose legislation to temporarily extend the low-rate student loans. Obama is going on a three-state tour Tuesday and Wednesday to warn students of the potential financial difficulties they face in Congress fails to act.

The speech is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at the Coors Events Center.

People waited hours in a long line Monday on the Boulder campus for tickets to the speech.

The President will deliver the same message during campaign stops in North Carolina and Iowa.

Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he is also in favor of extending low-interest student loans.
