McCain Rally to Move From Fairfax School After Outcry
Advertisements [?]
Source: Washington Post

Fairfax County school officials said that a rally scheduled tomorrow for Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, will be moved from Fairfax High School, following protests from some School Board members and parents that the event would violate school system policy.

The decision to move the event was made by the McCain campaign, Fairfax schools spokesman Paul Regnier said.

Late in the afternoon, the McCain campaign announced that the rally will be held at Van Dyck Park in Fairfax County and that people will begin assembling at 8 a.m. An e-mail from the campaign said that the Fairfax High field house, which can hold as many as 6,500 people, was not big enough.

A statement from the McCain campaign did not address the controversy.

The school board fielded "dozens" of complaints.
