Seen at Wednesday’s Obama Warrensburg speech: Mayor Sly James; Jaco exec Mike Sanders; KC councilman Jermaine Reed; former city councilman Al Brooks (who talked with us, movingly, about his late wife); state senators David Pearce and (we think) Will Kraus (both Republicans); Sen. Claire McCaskill and Gov. Jay Nixon


A no-show, as far as we could tell: AG

Chris Koster, a Democrat.
