St. Louis – Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry will campaign again in Missouri this week.
Party officials say Kerry will participate in a town hall-style event on Friday in St. Louis County.
A few hundred senior citizens from the area will be invited to attend. He'll appear at the Affton Senior Center at 9:45 a.m.
Co-chairman of the Kerry campaign in Missouri, Congressman Dick Gephardt, says the candidate will discuss retirement community and health care issues on Friday.
"What we've been saying is that George Bush has made the wrong choices on health care, Medicare and a wide assortment of senior issues and he's weakened the country in doing so," Gephardt said.
President Bush spent two days campaigning this week in Missouri, where most polls show him leading Kerry slightly.
