President Barack Obama traveled to Kansas City, Mo., today to visit a company benefiting from the federal stimulus package.

It's part of a three-day tour by the President to promote jobs and encourage an increase in U.S. exports.

Obama wants to promote green jobs  and show people how the stimulus money is doing just that.

He visited Smith Electric Vehicles, a zero-emissions delivery truck company  that received a federal grant of $32 million to build all-electric trucks.

Voters are key for Obama right now, as he's hoping to help Senate hopeful Robin Carnahan of Missouri and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada in the midterm elections.
