Minneapolis, Minn. — (AP) - Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore will speak at the University of Minnesota on Friday, an appearance that had been in doubt after campus Republicans objected to any use of school funds to pay for the event.
Moore will speak at 8 p.m. at Williams Arena, with his appearance sponsored by the Minnesota Alliance for Progressive Action. Tickets are $6 for the general public, $5 for students. The arena holds 14,000 people.
...Moore is competing with two other big events Friday: the first playoff home game for the Minnesota Twins and the second presidential debate.
"We're encouraging people to tape the presidential debate and come see Michael Moore live," said C. Scott Cooper, MAPA's executive director.
