COLUMBIA, SC -- If you want to see Senator Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey, there is now enough room for you at their rally Sunday. Due to the overwhelming response for their trip to Columbia, South Carolina, campaign workers have moved the site to accomodate more people.
The previous location, the Colonial Center, simply wasn't big enough for the large crowd. The free tickets went fast, and the waiting list continued to grow by the minute, so workers decided to change their plans.
The new site will be Williams Brice Stadium on the Campus of the University of South Carolina. It can hold more than 80,000 people.
The rally starts at 2:30. You no longer need tickets to the event, but you are encouraged to sign a list. You can do that by going to www.my.barackobama.com/page/s/scoprah.
