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

Biden was scheduled to speak at 3:30 p.m. at the Pageant, but the event didn't start until 5:30. It was 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.

A St. Louis Post-Dispatch poll released Friday shows Blunt with 47 percent support, Kander 46 percent, well within the margin of error.
