Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama (D-IL) visits Missouri for the second time in less than a week. Monday it was a visit to Independence to speak at the Truman Library. Saturday it was St. Louis and a speech to a national conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
In his address to attendees gathered at the America’s Center, Obama spoke of his commitment to Christianity. And he spoke of his faith would follow him to the White House if he is elected President in November.
Presumptive Republican presidential candidate John McCain (R-AZ) has been invited to address the gathering, as well, but organizers say they have yet to hear from the McCain campaign. The convention runs through Thursday.
