Missouri Democrats Mobilize

Missouri Democrats meeting are mobilizing for the general election. KCUR's Frank Morris reports from Denver, Colo.

Democrats here are excited about the big speech their presidential nominee, Barack Obama is going to give at the pro football stadium here. They've been showing up from across Missouri and Kansas, some without tickets. But the business at hand has to do with the 66 days between that speech and the general election.

Missouri 5th District congressman Emanuel Cleaver rallied the troops this morning. Democratic leaders say a key test for their party will be keeping the passion roused over the last few days going through November.
