Looking for a ticket to the next presidential inauguration?

A U.S. senator from the Magnolia State says he is giving away tickets to Mississippians — but only upon request.

Republican Sen. Roger Wicker’s office will receive a limited number of free tickets to attend the 58th presidential inauguration in 2017.

On Jan. 20, President-elect Donald Trump will take the oath of office.

If you’re interested in seeing it firsthand, you have until Nov. 23 to email a formal request to Wicker.

If you’re one of the lucky ones to get a ticket, you’ll need to pick it up by Jan. 19, the day before the inauguration, in Wicker’s office in Washington.
