Republican presidential nominee John McCain (R-AZ) and his vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin (R-AK) visit the Kansas City area on Monday for a rally in Lee’s Summit . And McCain campaign officials are expecting a huge turnout.
What was initially penciled in as what the Missourinet was told would be a private McCain visit to Columbia was changed, over the weekend, to what Republicans are calling a "Road to Victory Rally," with that rally scheduled for Monday morning at 10:30 in Lee’s Summit. No tickets are required for the event.
A statement from Wendy Riemann with the McCain campaign says, "Phones in our victory offices have been ringing off the hook from people looking for more information about Monday’s Road to Victory Rally in Lee’s Summit. The McCain/Palin ticket is committed to winning Missouri and we are looking forward to a great event."
