Micheal Mahoney, Political reporter for KMBC TV in Kansas City, reports via his blog, 20 Pounds of Headlines, that Gov. Palin will stump for Sarah Steelman at a Cass County campaign rally Friday night. It’s part of what Mahoney calls a trifecta:
Palin’s endorsement of Steelman’s last week, followed by a Palin TV spot that started broadcasting this week, and the campaign stop at what is being called the ‘Steelman Surge’ for next Tuesday’s primary.
The event will be at the Berry Patch Farm at State Line and Cleveland in northern Cass County.
“I am so grateful to have Governor Palin’s support and very excited to say she will be coming into Missouri to participate in this BBQ. I know she will excite folks to come out and take a strong stand against the status quo,” Steelman said in a statement announcing Palin’s appearance.
Cass County is located south of Lee’s Summit in northwest Missouri.
