First Lady to Speak in Gainesville Monday
There's still a time to get your hands on a ticket to see the first lady in Gainesville next week.
Michelle Obama will speak at the O-Dome on Monday.
After the announcement was made yesterday, supporters came out in droves to reserve their tickets.
The doors open at noon on Monday and the First Lady speaks at 3:30.
The event is free and open to the public.
But you need a ticket to get in.
Students say that any suspicions of low voter turnout among young people should be squashed by the thousands that lined up outside of the O'Connell Center.
"If anyone had any questions about how excited people are about the campaign, they can look no further than the giant crowd that showed here today and the giant crowd that is going to raise the roof on Monday."
Some waited in the line for as long as three hours before they got their ticket.
Tickets are still available--starting today at Ten a.m.
Michelle Obama last came to north central Florida during the 2008 election campaign and drew more than ten thousand people to downtown Gainesville.
