Dole wrapping up statewide homecoming tour

MOUND CITY, Kan. (AP) — Former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole returns to Kansas next week for the 10th and final leg of a statewide homecoming tour that began in April.

The 91-year-old Russell native has scheduled stops in nine southeast Kansas communities Tuesday through Thursday. Those visits will complete his tour of all 105 counties to greet friends and supporters.

Dole, who lives in Washington, spends about an hour at each stop.

The tour will begin Tuesday with a stop at the Linn County Fairgrounds in Mound City. On Wednesday, Dole is to visit Fort Scott, Pittsburg, Columbus and Oswego. He concludes the tour Thursday with stops in Fredonia, Chanute, Iola and Garnett.

The visits are separate from campaign appearances Dole plans to make on behalf of Republican candidates next week.
