Always wanted to press flesh with the First Lady? On Friday, Oct. 17, you'll have the opportunity to do just that. Michelle Obama will be in town campaigning for Charlie Crist's bid to regain the Sunshine State governor's seat. Yeah, yeah, we know, as a Democrat, you can't believe you're considering voting for Charlie Crist. That's why First Lady Obama's here: to make the bitter taste go down just a little bit easier for those of you who still aren't sure you can swallow.
Friday's fundraiser takes place at former basketball star Grant Hill's home, and tickets for the event are available right now, either online or at one of three Orlando-area Charlie Crist campaign field office. We'll give you a little hint though: if you "claim a ticket" online, you'll still have to stop by a field office to pick up a ticket, so just save yourself a step and go get a ticket in person. Even if you RSVP online, if you don't have a ticket, you won't get in.
