Tomorrow, 2008 presidential candidate and current U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, along with fellow Republican senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, will be in town to discuss military spending as part of their Preserving America's Strength tour.

From the press release:

The three senators, all members of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, will discuss how the cuts will weaken American national security, put one million jobs at risk and break faith with the men and women of our Armed Forces and their families. The Department of Defense has already agreed to reduce defense spending by nearly $500 billion over ten years. The additional military spending cuts called for under sequestration would cut another $500 billion on top of that figure.

The town hall will be tomorrow morning at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, in the Upper Lodge, 1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway from 10 to 11. It is free and open to the public.

"We are expecting anywhere from 100 to 200 people," says Lisa Bachman, one of the organizers. "They do have to contact the [Greater Colorado Springs Chamber and EDC] to register."

If you're interested, visit the Chamber website. And plan to get there early, as the parking situation is a bit tricky. According to Bachman, you won't be able to park on the campus. Instead, she asks that you park in the lot at University Village, in front of Panera Bread. From there, you can catch one of the shuttles that start running at 9.
