Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will campaign in the Kansas City area Friday night on behalf of U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Steelman.
Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, will appear with Steelman at 6 p.m. at a picnic in Cleveland, Mo., south of Kansas City.
Palin announced her support of Steelman, who's locked in a primary battle with John Brunner and Todd Akin, on July 17 and has appeared in TV ads for Steelman. The winner will face Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in November.
The picnic will be at The Berry Patch, a blueberry farm at 22509 State Line Road. Steelman and Palin will serve the food.
