CFP reports that crowds have been arriving all through the night for the Showdown in Searchlight rally in Harry Reid's Nevada home town, where Sarah Palin will be the star attraction:
With hundreds of RV’s and cars already arriving, organizers at the Tea Party Express are revising the projected crowd size for the rally higher - and expect more than 10,000 supporters to attend this historic event.The event will likely draw widespread coverage fromthe media, as the large contingent of reporters and camera crews that have been in Arizona to report on Gov. Palin campaigning for John McCain will follow her to Nevada. Registered viewers can watch on PJTV. Fox News is also streaming it here.
Supporters are coming in from every county in Nevada and every state in the nation.
“This event is exceeding even our own expectations. We’ve said it time-and-again, this has become a ‘Conservative Woodstock’ and tonight, this piece of land in the middle of the Nevada desert has a temporary population that has already surpassed that of the entire town of Searchlight, NV” said Joe Wierzbicki, Coordinator for the Tea Party Express.
