ASBURY PARK - President Barack Obama is expected to visit Sandy-damaged businesses in Asbury Park Tuesday.

The president will speak outside Convention Hall. The 2,000 tickets to the event went in less than an hour Sunday afternoon.
Crews worked to prepare the boardwalk for the presidential visit Monday.

Residents with tickets to the event hope to hear the president talk about help for homeowners that are still struggling. Business owners say they're excited for the president's visit and the business it will bring from ticket-holders.

Obama was last at the Jersey Shore right after the storm hit when he toured the damage with Gov. Chris Christie.
