Seeking to kick his general-election campaign into gear, Republican gubernatorial nominee Eric Greitens on Thursday will launch a three-day statewide tour that will bring him to the Kansas City area.

Greitens will launch the tour on Thursday afternoon in Springfield. He’ll be in Lee’s Summit at noon Friday at his campaign office, 706 SE 3rd St.

The tour will end on Saturday night in Cape Girardeau.

A former Navy SEAL, Greitens trails in polls to Democratic nominee Chris Koster.
