IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The president and his running mate are planning a post-convention trip to Iowa City.
Campaign officials say President Barack Obama and the first lady, Michelle Obama, will be accompanied by Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, when they visit Iowa City on Friday. Obama is scheduled to make his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday night.
The four are expected to visit New Hampshire first on Friday morning before flying to Iowa, one of the tossup states in this year's general election.
