WASHINGTON (AP) _ Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama
is ramping up his campaign organization in Missouri.
The Illinois senator's campaign is placing a full-time director in Missouri and plans to open offices in St. Louis and Kansas City in the next few weeks.
Obama has raised nearly 2.5 million dollars from Missouri donors, more than any other Democratic presidential candidate.
At least 20 states, including Missouri, plan to hold presidential primaries or caucuses on February 5th.
