A top Republican source tells KY3 News that Sarah Palin's rally in Springfield Friday is being moved to the parking lot of Bass Pro Shops on South Campbell.
The move comes after a long day of scrambling to find a new location after droves of supporters ended up without tickets. Four-thousand tickets were given out at two Ozarks locations in just an hour and a half.
People who did receive a ticket for Palin's rally will be placed in a special section for the rally at Bass Pro. Anyone who does not have a ticket is invited to come to the rally. The gates will still open at 9 a.m. for the rally. The program is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
The McCain campaign made it official at 6:13 p.m.
"While we are extremely honored and appreciative of Missouri State University being willing to host Governor Palin’s Road to Victory Rally on Friday in the McDonald Arena, due to the overwhelming demand of the people in Springfield wanting to hear some straight talk from Governor Palin about how the McCain-Palin ticket will keep taxes low, improve the economy and keep our country safe, we have needed to move the Road to Victory Rally to a larger venue," said Regional Press Secretary Wendy Riemann. "The Rally will now be held in the parking lot of the Bass Pro Corporate Headquarters in Springfield. All times will remain the same. People who stood in line this morning for tickets, should bring their ticket with them to the new rally site, as they will be in a special reserved section. Those who don’t have a ticket are also welcome to attend the rally," added Riemann.
