Palin Springfield, MO rally moved to larger venue

The Greene County GOP has announced that because of overwhelming demand, the location of the Friday 11:00 a.m. Sarah Palin Road to Victory Rally in Springfield, MO has been moved from Missouri State University’s McDonald Arena to the Bass Pro Shop Parking lot at 1935 S. Campbell (corner of Campbell and Sunshine).

McDonald Arena only seats 4,000 people, and all of the available tickets were gone shortly after they were made available this morning at 9:00 a.m. Many who stood in long lines at GOP headquarters in both Green and Christian counties hoping to get tickets were not able to obtain them.

Local GOP officials were able to work out an arrangement with Bass Pro Shops, which has a very large parking lot at its Springfield location. No additional tickets are being printed, but those who were not able to obtain tickets will be allowed to enter to a general admission area. Ticket holders will be admitted to a reserved seating area.
