The media can’t stop talking about the crowds Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is attracting. There are reports that his crowds in California and Portland, Oregon were both larger than 27,000. They breathlessly report on this, while forgetting to mention Sanders is a self-described socialist.
But what Donald Trump and his campaign has planned for TONIGHT in Mobile, Alabama could blow those numbers out of the water. Initially planning for a rally of 2,000 people at a small venue, tickets were grabbed so quickly that major changes had to be made.
Now, the event will be held in the Ladd-Peeles Stadium, a football stadium where the yearly Senior Bowl is played. More than 30,000 people have been confirmed to attend, and the stadium capacity is over 40,000. The free tickets are still being claimed at a fast pace, and show no signs of slowing down!
To put that in perspective, that’s bigger than the largest crowd of President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, when Oprah Winfrey joined him in South Carolina! That means this Trump event will smash through crowd records effortlessly!
With his next campaign stop being in Alabama, it’s only fitting that presidential candidate Donald Trump is going to rally up supporters in a jam-packed football stadium.
City officials have confirmed to News 5 the location for Donald Trump’s pep rally in Mobile on Friday night has been moved to Ladd-Peebles Stadium. It’s the same venue used for the Senior Bowl and University of South Alabama home games.
“It’s due to an overwhelming response,” said Kayla Farnon, spokeswoman for the Alabama Secretary of State’s Office. “More than 30,000 people have been confirmed to attend. “
News 5 is told Trump’s campaign has gone the extra mile to make the event as accommodating as possible. Parking will be free, WAVE shuttles to the stadium will be provided, and there will be concession stands for food and drinks.
Trump’s campaign is fronting most, if not the entire bill for the event, including paying the overtime accumulated by Mobile city workers.
Here is a picture of the massive venue:
