A ticket to see President Barack Obama in exchange for a $50 bill? Sounds like a good deal to UI student Jared Corso.
Corso is one of 750 individuals from a pool of more than 10,000 applicants chosen to receive a pair of tickets to see the president in Iowa City on Thursday. The UI junior said Tuesday night he used craigslist to find a buyer for the ticket. They settled on a price of $50. Corso said he also considered trading the ticket for a Playstation3 game.
