Between 1,000 and 1,100 in arena

There now appear to be nearly 400 people sitting in the free seats in the risers around the floor of the Qwest Arena for the Sarah Palin-Vaughn Ward rally, and another 650 or so in the $10 seats on the floor, for a total of between 1,000 and 1,100. The word is that both Ward and Palin are now in the building; the band just led a Ward sign-waving chorus to the lyrics, "Go Vaughn Ward," and then wrapped up.
