32. I believe this is the story you're talking about.

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – CBS11 News has learned two cities in North Texas, Grand Prairie and Irving, have rejected playing host to Donald Trump’s campaign rallies in the days leading up to the presumptive Republican nominee’s visit to the Dallas area Thursday.

Aside from a rally, the Trump campaign has scheduled a fundraiser.

“It’s very unusual that the Republican candidate for president in this deep red state would be having trouble finding a venue for his rallies,” said SMU Political science professor Cal Jillson.

The Trump campaign requested to hold the rally Thursday evening at the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie; the same location Democrat Bernie Sanders attracted 7,000 supporters in February.

But Grand Prairie police, who declined an on-camera interview, said the city rejected the Trump campaign’s request because of traffic and parking concerns.

The city of Irving rejected the Trump campaign’s request to hold the rally at its convention center. It released the following statement:

“In consultation with the Irving Police Department, the city of Irving decided it was not given sufficient time – given a 48 hour notice – to gather the resources necessary to ensure the safety and security of those attending such a large-scale, high-profile event.”
