Obama Coming To Kansas

KSCB News - December 5, 2011 8:15 am

A couple hundred people lined up
overnight in frigid temperatures to get a ticket to see President
Barack Obama at Osawatomie High School in eastern Kansas.
The line began forming early
Saturday evening to get tickets that are being handed out at noon
Sunday on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Obama says his speech at 1 p.m. Tuesday will focus on the
economy and what the president sees as a "make or break moment"
for the middle class.
Republican President Theodore Roosevelt spoke in Osawatomie in
1910, a year after he left the presidency, and called for a "new
Nationalism."
Democrats were surprised by Obama’s choice of venue for the
speech, since he didn’t come close to carrying Republican-leaning
Kansas in 2008.
