Galesburg Residents Line Up for Obama Tickets
Laura Fults was the first in line outside the college's communications office Monday. Fults told The Register-Mail newspaper that she wants to hear what the president will say about the economy.
Obama's speech in Galesburg is one in a series White House officials say the president will deliver in the weeks ahead on the economy.
Tami Eager says she wants to hear the president talk about education. She works in education and would like more money for schools.
But Galesburg resident Diane Eager has another agenda. She says she hopes to see some of her favorite television news anchors and reporters in town.
