According to a brief announcement on the Buncombe County Republican Party’s Web site, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the GOP’s vice-presidential candidate, will visit Asheville this Sunday, Oct. 26, for a rally at the Asheville Civic Center.
Tickets to the rally are free, but are limited to two per person. In Asheville, tickets can be picked up today (Friday, Oct. 24), between 4 and 8 p.m. at the Republicans’ Victory ‘08 Headquarters (16 Regent Park Blvd.). They will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Information on obtaining electronic tickets, as well as other WNC ticket locations, is available on the McCain/Palin campaign Web site.
According to that site, doors at the Civic Center will open at 4 p.m. on Sunday, and attendees must arrive by 6 p.m. For security reasons, both bags and signs will not be permitted into the rally.
