Trump’s Mobile event drawing South Mississippians

Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile could be packed Friday, but it will be Donald Trump, not high school football, drawing the crowd.

And there will be South Mississippians among the spectators, expected to be up to 40,000, organizers say. The Donald Trump for President pep rally started out in the Mobile Civic Center, but was moved to the much-larger outdoor stadium as the number of ticket requests swelled.

Who knows how big the crowd would be if the event didn’t compete with Friday night football.
