Inauguration '09: Hottest Ticket around

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

TALLAHASSEE, FL (WFLX) - Florida's congressional leaders say they're swamped with requests for tickets to attend the swearing-in ceremony.

Senator Mel Martinez's office has received 50,000 requests; even though, he only has about 400 tickets to give out.

Members of the House get fewer than 200 tickets each, so several are offering consolation prizes.

South Florida Representatives Ron Klein and Robert Wexler are hosting a Pre-Inauguration Day reception at the Library of Congress for those left ticketless.
