Joe Biden Rallies Crowd in St. Louis
By Rachel Lippmann, KWMU
St. Louis, MO – Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden was in Arnold, Missouri on Thursday in another busy political day for Missouri. K-W-M-U's Rachel Lippmann reports.
Biden's rally is one of three the presidential campaigns happening today. Sarah Palin spoke in Cape Girardeau about an hour and a half before Biden took the stage. And Barack Obama will be in Columbia tonight
The Democrats have spent most of the last year trying to tie John McCain to the unpopular President Bush - efforts Biden continued in his speech.
"I know Halloween's coming," said Biden. "But John McCain, dressed up as an agent of change, that costume doesn't fit, folks. Folks ain't gonna buy that costume."
Polls in Missouri have the presidential candidates in a virtual tie. Federal finance records show the Democrats out-raising Republicans in the state.
