Palin Draws Overflow Crowd At Home Depot Center

CARSON, Calif. An enthusiastic crowd estimated between 15,000 and 20,000 jammed the Home Depot tennis stadium to rally for Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in Carson Saturday.

Palin praised running mate John McCain and criticized Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama while spelling out the goals of a McCain-Palin administration during her speech before an overflow crowd. Home Depot Center officials estimated as many as 20,000 people, jammed into the 8,000-seat capacity facility and an overflow area, attended the rally.

Saturday's event was Palin's first visit to Southern California since McCain named her as his running mate Aug. 29. The Alaska governor said her father was born in Los Angeles and her paternal grandfather was a photographer who lived in North Hollywood.

"His specialty was taking photographs of boxers," Palin said. "I learned from him there are times it is necessary, there is a time to take the gloves off and that time is right now."

When Palin was heckled, she said, "My son is over in Iraq now fighting for the freedoms that person is exercising." The heckler was escorted out by sheriff's deputies.
