TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- State officials have been left to speculate about President Barack Obama's plans for a visit this week to the University of Kansas as they wait to hear more details.

The White House confirmed Monday that Obama is planning an official event Friday at the university but provided no other information. University spokesman Jack Martin said it had no details.

Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon said the White House told state party officials that it was looking for a site that could hold 3,000 to 6,000 people for a midday event.

But Wagnon said she still hasn't received any details about the purpose of Obama's visit.

Kansas is a Republican stronghold, and the Democratic president received 38 percent of the state's vote in winning re-election last year.
