President Obama To Speak At KU

KSAL StaffJanuary 17, 2015

President Barack Obama is planning to travel next week to the University of Kansas to make remarks only two days after he gives the annual State of the Union address.

The White House and the university confirmed that Obama has scheduled a visit Thursday to the university’s campus in Lawrence. Both said more details would be released later.

The Democratic president gives the State of the Union address Tuesday.

Kansas has voted for every Republican presidential nominee since 1964. But Lawrence is considered a liberal enclave, and Obama carried Douglas County in 2008 and 2012.

The university says the last visit by a sitting president was William Howard Taft in 1911, but Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton visited after leaving office.
