Cover the kids’ ears: McCaskill, Blunt and Nixon all in KC Wednesday

At about the time Sen. Claire McCaskill holds a town hall meeting in Kansas City Wednesday (see below), Sen. Roy Blunt

will be meeting with “hospital leaders” — in Kansas City.

The rare double dose of senatorial attention will come between 12:15 and 1:30 or so.

Blunt is at Research Medical Center. McCaskill is at UMKC, about a 10 minute drive away.

But let’s go for a trifecta.

Gov. Jay Nixon is also here Wednesday. He’ll sign a bill at 10:30 a.m. at the Hope Lodge on Pennsylvania Ave. (the one in Kansas City, not the one in Washington.)
