Several hundred people waited anxiously Wednesday for their exclusive ticket to see President Obama up close and personal.
Annette Suarez waited 6 hours but was the first to get a ticket. "Oh, I am sweaty. We've been here since 11 a.m.," said Suarez.
"We've seen him every time he's come to Richmond because we've been able to see him, from afar, not up close, every time he comes into town. We make sure we do get a chance to see him," said Charlotte Patterson.
Obama's campaign visit won't be like the last, where thousands of people crowded into the Siegel Center. That's why even with just 300 people in line at the Richmond location, not everyone got a ticket. The same goes for hundreds of people who lined up at the campaign office in Henrico.
The president will address the public here at the Walkerton Tavern, a historic and cultural site located in a quiet neighborhood in Glen Allen.
The president is expected to talk about the economy, jobs, and his plans to pay down the debt. This is just one of the stops for the president during this two day barnstorm across Virginia.
The president will also be traveling to Virginia Beach, Hampton Roads and Roanoke.
