Everything’s bigger in Texas — including, it seems, the number of people who get excluded from a Trump rally because there aren’t enough seats.
According to the Houston Chronicle, over 77,000 people have signed up for a rally for Sen. Ted Cruz hosted by the president in Houston as Cruz tries to put his Democratic challenger, U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, behind him.
Problem - Venue - People
There’s a slight problem, however: The venue only holds 18,000 people.
The rally is scheduled for Monday at the Toyota Center, home of the NBA’s Houston Rockets. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told the Chronicle his department is “fully mobilized” for the event — and that includes the possibility of an overflow crowd.
Mind - Capacity - Ticket - Acevedo - Newspaper
“Keep in mind that once the capacity is met, you won’t get in whether you have a ticket or not,” Acevedo said, according to the newspaper.
That’s pretty much a game-changer for Trump fans hoping to make it in at the last minute. If you want to get to the event, you’d best be lining up early.
Chronicle - Rally - O'Rourke - Thousands
The Chronicle also mentioned a rally for O’Rourke nearby “that could draw thousands more people.” Probably not 77,000, though.
“We will have many many officers out and about,” Acevedo told the Chronicle. “We will have officers on the high ground, low ground, in the air. We will have officers in plainclothes, we will have undercover officers, we will have react teams.”
Fact - O'Rourke - Trump - Number - Respects
In fact, O’Rourke seems to have been piggybacking off of Trump in a number of respects of late. He even decided to borrow Trump’s nickname for Cruz during the 2016 GOP presidential primary battle — “Lyin’ Ted” — during a debate last Wednesday.
Do you think Ted Cruz will beat Beto O'Rourke?
