The White House said Wednesday that Obama will discuss the stakes in a debate that has stirred deep passions on both sides.

The 12:30 p.m. rally will be held at Target Center, with the audience determined on a first-come, first-serve basis.

This will be Obama's first visit to Minnesota as president.

Minnesota Republicans derided the Obama stop as a "Hail Mary" pass.
