First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to make an appearance in Racine and Wausau Friday.

Crowds have been lining up all morning at the University of Wisconsin Marathon County.

Tickets to see the First Lady were distributed earlier this week, but even that doesn't guarantee a seat. That's why a line began forming around 7 am Friday morning.

It will be the third time the first lady has visited Wisconsin in months. She appeared in Appleton in late September, and in Milwaukee a month earlier.

She is expected to speak around 4 pm at UWMC. NewsChannel 7's Amy Pflugshaupt will be at the college and will have full reports tonight.

Obama is key in the Democrats' effort to energize the party and has a higher approval rating than the President.
