Greensboro, NC -- First Lady Michelle Obama won't be in the Triad to campaign for her husband until Wednesday, but people still lined up early Sunday morning for a chance to hear her speak.
"I left home at 4:30 a.m.," Kim Alexander, who drove from Concord, said with a laugh. Alexander got to the Obama campaign office on Greene Street by 6 a.m. Sunday, and was the first person in to get tickets to the First Lady's Wednesday speech.
Alexander said she wanted to be sure she had the chance to see Michelle Obama in person because she feels like she can identify with her. A mother herself, Alexander says she admires what the First Lady is "doing with the 'Let's Move' and eat right projects she has, and working with the military families."
Michelle Obama will speak Wednesday afternoon at UNCG. The event is free and open to the public, but you do need a ticket. The president's campaign offices in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point and Burlington started handing them out Sunday afternoon.
