The Buzz

Who was there, who wasn’t

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.
