GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) — Just days after finishing the second of several planned trips through Kansas this year, former Sen. Bob Dole has announced the schedule for his next visit.

The 90-year-old Russell native toured 16 communities of northeast, central and south-central Kansas last week. On Tuesday, aides announced he’ll return next week for three days of stops in western Kansas.

The tour begins May 28 with stops in Goodland, Sharon Springs, Oakley, Colby, Hoxie and Quinter. The following day, Dole will be in WaKeeney, Hill City, Norton, Oberlin and Atwood. He’ll finish up May 30 at the public library in St. Francis.

Dole lives in Washington, D.C., and is making the homecoming tour to greet longtime supporters and friends throughout the state.
