SPRINGFIELD — A rally with Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is being moved to a larger site in Springfield.
Friday morning's event was initially scheduled for an arena at Missouri State University.
But the party says all 4,000 tickets were snapped up within 90 minutes Wednesday morning at Republican headquarters in Greene and Christian counties. Hundreds more Palin fans were left empty-handed.
Palin's "Road to Victory" rally will now take place instead in the parking lot of Bass Pro Shops in Springfield. The outdoor outfitter is one of Missouri's biggest attractions.
The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday. No tickets are needed.
Later Friday, Palin heads to St. Louis to drop the ceremonial first puck as the Blues play the Los Angeles Kings.
