GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is again moving his Friday evening rally in Mobile, Ala., to a venue with more seating amid overwhelming demand, according to a Thursday news report.
Trump is now conducting a Friday night pep rally and town hall event at the Ladd Peebles Stadium, home to the University of South Alabama’s football team, according to CBS’s local affiliate.
Trump had already moved from the Mobile Civic Center Theater to the center’s main arena, which has a capacity of 14,000. Tickets for Trump’s stop were selling so quickly, however, that another venue move was needed.
"It's going to end up at thirty- to forty-thousand people in Alabama," Trump said this week.
Ladd Peebles Stadium hosts the South Alabama Jaguars’ home games, as well as two college bowl games a season. The sporting arena also reportedly has maximum capacity of 50,000 people.
Trump’s stop in Mobile comes as he leads the race for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination across multiple national polls.
