Yarmuth's Office Flooded With Inauguration Ticket Requests

Thousands of Louisville-area residents have submitted requests for tickets to the presidential Inauguration.

Third District U.S. Congressman John Yarmuth’s office is responsible for distributing his allotment of tickets, but says demand far outweighs supply.

“I think it’s approaching 7,000 requests that we’ve had for tickets,” he says. “And we were allocated 198, so unfortunately a lot of people are not going to be happy about that.”

The inauguration is January 20th. Yarmuth has no official role in the ceremony.
