ST. LOUIS (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to be in St. Louis on Friday, campaigning for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jason Kander.

Biden is scheduled to speak at 3:30 p.m. at the Pageant. It is part of a get-out-the-vote effort.

Kander, Missouri's secretary of state, and incumbent Republican Sen. Roy Blunt are involved in a neck-and-neck race. It is being watched across the country because control of the Senate could be at stake.
