2.500 Tickets Available to See Sarah Palin . . . by Video Remote

We’ve heard from time to time that Alaska governor Sarah Palin is a big draw for GOP events. Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how big a draw she is.

Sarah Palin will visit Evansville for two events in April.
She’s scheduled to attend the annual Vanderburgh County Right to Life banquet on April 16.
The banquet itself is sold out, but 2,500 tickets are being sold for a live broadcast feed of her appearance in the centre auditorium, which is located in the same complex as the banquet. If those tickets sell out, it could be the largest event in the history of the centre.

The banquet itself seats 2,180 people.
