Democrats Quickly Sell Out Tickets for Clinton, Obama

By Beacon Staff

HELENA – The Montana Democratic Party says it sold 2,400 tickets for an April 5 dinner featuring Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in about 15 minutes.

The extra tickets were put up for sale because the dinner had sold out previous to the announcement that Obama and Clinton would be speaking. A total of 4,000 people are expected at the Mansfield-Metcalf in the Butte Civic Center.

The $40 tickets offered for sale online Wednesday morning were for stadium seating at the event and included a box dinner.

The party says due to security issues, people who bought tickets cannot sell them to someone else.
