Michigan Voters Camp Out for Chance to See President

By  | 

Some folks didn't take a chance in missing the president.

People spent the night camped outside the Republican campaign headquarters in Traverse City waiting for tickets to see President Bush.

The line started forming around 6 p.m. Thursday night. A little more than 100 people curled up in sleeping bags in tents. GOP workers began handing out the tickets Friday morning.

The tickets are available first come, first serve.

The rally is Monday afternoon at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center.

The visit will be Bush's 19th trip to the state since he became president.
