(CNN) - Bill Clinton’s impact on his wife’s presidential campaign is still being hotly debated, with exit polls out of South Carolina suggesting that his presence on the trail may have been a net negative for Hillary Clinton at the polls.
But as votes are still being counted in South Carolina, the former president is already stumping for his wife in a Super Tuesday state.
This evening, he appeared at an event in Independence, Missouri. The state, which neighbors Barack Obama's home state of Illinois, is expected to be a major battleground on February 5.
Barack Obama has already been endorsed by two of Missouri’s most high-profile Democratic women – Sen. Claire McCaskill and former Sen. Jean Carnahan, the widow of highly popular Missouri Gov. Mel Carnahan.
The state's largest paper, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, has also endorsed Obama. In a Sunday editorial posted to the paper's Web site Saturday night, it pointed to what it called "Clinton fatigue."
The paper's editorial board also backed John McCain in Missouri's Republican primary vote.
