At least 1,000 people quickly snatched up tickets for a free Minneapolis rally with Sarah Palin and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann Tuesday. The Republican Party will make more available. Tickets are available on the party's Web site at


Although there will be some cost to the party for the April 7 afternoon rally, the party may well make it back at a fundraising a few hours later, featuring the two Republican stars.

According to an invitation, tickets to the money event cost $500, with prices sky rocketing to $10,000 for a "private reception with photo opportunity." The couples who shell out $10,000 also get to fill a table for ten at a dinner.

Here's a copy of the fundraiser invite and here's suggested donation list.  Bachmann's re-election campaign will get the first $4,800 of any money donated from an individual. Cash gifts beyond that campaign finance limit will go to the Minnesota Republican party.
