The Hillary Clinton campaign is ramping up in the two-state area.
A spokesman says the campaign has hired Dan Bram to organize supporters in Missouri. Bram will help assemble a series of summer events for the campaign, as well as train volunteers and prepare for the primary next spring.
Bram worked for state Sen. Jill Schupp, the campaign says. He’ll apparently be based in St. Louis.
Andrea Johnson has been hired for Kansas. She lives in Leavenworth.
Never miss a local story.
There does not appear to be any similar effort in either state by any other announced presidential candidate. Missouri’s Jeff Roe, of course, is the top national strategist for Sen. Ted Cruz.
The campaign also says a Kansas City man helped convince them to produce a rainbow-colored bumper sticker as a reminder of Clinton’s support for same-sex marriage.
The campaign changed its “H” with an arrow symbol into a multi-colored icon the day the same-sex marriage case was heard in the Supreme Court. Christopher Cuhel with the Lyric Opera suggested the rainbow-colored symbol should be produced as a bumper sticker.
