•Obama never gave up on this conservative-trending state. Republicans were always sweet on their chances — until the economy soured.
•Missouri is a must-win for McCain. For Obama, it’s just one more place to put his opponent away.
FACTOID
One early September count of TV ads in Missouri showed Obama spent $492,000 to McCain’s $193,000.
SAYS IT ALL
“Don’t underestimate our ability to screw it up. … I want everybody running scared.” — Barack Obama.
WHEN?
6 p.m. Memorial gates open at 4. Tickets aren’t required, but please RSVP online at www.barackobama.com (http://www.barackobama.com/).
