Missouri Secretary of State (and U.S. Senate candidate) Robin Carnahan (D) stopped in Warrensburg this afternoon to visit with voters at the UCM homecoming football game. This was the third of four campaign stops for the day – spanning the state from east to west.
Arriving at UCM’s stadium.
The campaign bus arrived at the stadium at approximately 3:15 p.m., trailed by a car with a reporter and a photographer for the New York Times (as I understood it – I was shooting photographs and the Times folks weren’t engaging me in small talk).

Robin Carnahan spent about an hour at the stadium visiting with folks attending the game. A staffer politely reminded everyone that it was time to leave for the next stop and the traveling party walked back to their campaign bus for the final leg of the trip to Kansas City.
At this stage of any campaign it’s one thing after another at breakneck speed.
