NC Rep John Bradford is in Washington with his wife Shea and their children to see the historic transfer of power from Democrats to Republicans.

Bradford, who is in his second term in the NC House of Representatives, said lines for “reserved standing tickets” to view the Inauguration are three blocks long. Meanwhile, rain is falling on the Capitol building where the new president will be sworn in at noon today.
