Barack Obama is doing something virtually unheard of in presidential campaigns: He is visiting Kansas.
Tomorrow he will be in El Dorado, not too far from Wichita. This is the hometown of his maternal grandfather.
The event is at the Butler Community College gymnasium, 901 S.W. Haverhill Road. Doors at 11:45 a.m. Obama's scheduled arrival time has not been announced yet. The event is free and open to the public. But an RSVP is required. To RSVP, go to http://my.barackobama.com/ElDoradoCommunityEvent or call 316-789-5194.
Obama will also be appearing in the Exhibition Hall of Municipal Auditorium, 301 W. 13th St, in Kansas City, Mo. Doors open at 3:45 p.m. and the program begins at 5:45 p.m. The campaign asks that you RSVP by visiting http://my.barackobama.com/KansasCityTownHall or by calling 816.531.1108.
