Presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama will make a campaign stop Tuesday in Kansas. He will appear at the Butler Community College gymnasium at 901 SW Haverhill Road in El Dorado, according to a press release issued by his campaign.
Doors open at 11:45 a.m. The event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required. Obama, who is trying to win the Democratic nomination, will visit one week before the Kansas Democratic caucus. The Republican caucus is Feb 9.
El Dorado is the hometown of Obama's grandfather. State party officials have said that no Democratic presidential candidate has campaigned in Kansas since 1960. That's pretty cool. I am hoping to make it over for the event.
