Obama comes to Missouri for two fundraisers

In his first stop in Kansas City since taking the presidency, President Obama will first talk about jobs and green energy at Smith Electric Vehicles near KCI airport.

His motorcade then heads downtown for the Folly Theater and the nearby Kansas City Marriott Downtown for another speech and the fundraising events.

U.S. Senate candidate Robin Carnahan will be by Obama’s side as he tries to bolster her sputtering campaign against Republican Roy Blunt.

“It’s a photo op for both sides,” said George Connor, a Missouri State University political scientist.

Last week’s Rasmussen Report revealed that Roy Blunt lead Carnahan 48% to 43%. Tea Party members are expected to protest the president’s visit.
