With the November election a scant 14 days off, the two major-party candidates for Missouri governor on Monday announced campaign events in Kansas City.

At 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Democrat Chris Koster will attend a Women’s Leadership Roundtable at the Central Exchange, 1020 Central St., in downtown Kansas City. An accompanying press release notes that Koster supports closing the wage gap and favors abortion rights. “He has also committed to securing more contracts with women and minority-owned business,” the statement said.

At 7 p.m. Sunday, also in downtown Kansas City, Republican Eric Greitens will hold a rally with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who ran for president this year.

The rally will be at the Sheraton Crown Center, 2345 McGee St.

Walker will campaign with Greitens earlier Sunday in St. Louis and Springfield.

“Governor Scott Walker will be in Missouri on Sunday to support Eric Greitens on his mission to take Missouri in a new direction,” the invitation reads.
