Organizers of the scrapped Sarah Palin event say the show will go on -- with a date to be announced later this week. The 2008 vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor was to appear at American Airlines arena Wednesday, but the Liberty & Freedom Foundation -- which is putting on the event -- says its own scheduling conflict caused the postponement, not Palin.
"She was very gracious in moving for us and we appreciate it," said the group's executive director, Victor Cocchia. He said the rescheduled event is likely to also include an evening component.
A Palin event in August in Jacksonville got down-sized when ticket sales were slow, but Marcos Sendon with SFLA Conservative said Palin remains a hot ticket.
"From our end, ticket sales were going well," he said.
