Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley claimed that 20,000 Trump supporters were turned away due to the stadium already being at capacity.
Here is his quote:
“Do you know we had to turn away about 20,000 people or something who could not get into the stadium to be here tonight and see this man,” Hawley said during the rally with Trump. “It’s unbelievable.”
Here is a report from a local reporter:
Police tell me the JQH Arena May get to capacity. 11,000-plus expected at Trump/Hawley event in Springfield.
First people in line at 5:30am. Line is 2 miles long.@FOX2now @fox4kc pic.twitter.com/XXEimOu5JI
