Line forms for FLOTUS tickets

At 10 a.m. There were already 60 or 70 people in line for tickets to see First Lady Michelle Obama at the University of Mary Wasington Friday.

The tickets are being handed out beginning at 11 a.m. today in Central Park and Culpeper.

Jean Williams, of Spotsylvania, got in line at about 8:30 and was one of the first and she was

sporting a shirt with the face of the president.

“I’m here because I haven’t seen her personally,” she said.

She said she likes her because she is very personable and she is an all around awesome mother, wife and first lady.

“She’s the top of the list of first ladies,” she said.

Andrella Hall, of Stafford, was also in line early with her two children, who are 11 and 14.

“This is the first opportunity for the children to see her speak. I have and it was an awesome experience,” she said.

She said she likes the first lady’s charisma and says she has good traits everyone can experience.
