Could it be that the heat from both Democrat and GOP sides became a bit much for her?
Jim at 24th State received word today that MO Sec'y of State Robin Carnahan, presumptive Democrat candidate for Kit Bond's Senate set, would be canceling out on a fundraising engagement (note: I had previously stated it was in DC, but I can't verify that...) so she can attend Obama's appearance in Macon, MO this week.

Subject: Carnahan for Senate Dinner April 28th - POSTPONED
Robin will be with President Obama this week when he visits Missouri
so the April 28th dinner at the home of ------ and -------- ----------
has been postponed.
Please stay tuned for details on the rescheduled event.
Now this is pretty last minute notice. But I guess after missing the last event with "pre-scheduled" events, Carnahan couldn't afford to have more stories come her way.
The bigger question is where the Missouri media was. Did no one think to ask her campaign if she was going to Macon once it was announced? I know she wants to run a Rose Garden campaign, but shouldn't someone, somewhere be checking her calendar?
Bigger question indeed. Why is it that the old-guard media isn't covering these things, yet conservative bloggers seem to be able to? Perhaps they don't want to expose the truth about how Dem candidates like Robin Carnahan are trying to dodge Obama?
Inquiring minds want to know.
