Obama to Make Iowa City Area Stop April 25
By James Q. Lynch, Reporter
DES MOINES, Iowa – President Obama will make his second visit to the Eastern Iowa Corridor this year when he makes a stop in the Iowa City area April 25.
The White House has confirmed the president’s visit, but released no details about where he will be or what time of day he will visit. According to local sources, the president may visit the University of Iowa. It would be his third visit to the UI campus. The last was in March 2010 in the Field House. He also delivered an Earth Day speech on the Pentacrest in April 2007.
UI Security officials confirmed they expect the president’s advance team to be in Iowa City today to make arrangements for the visit.
Like his January visit to Conveyor Engineering & Manufacturing in Cedar Rapids, this will be an official White House event, according to a campaign official.
The day before the president visits, his wife, Michele, will headline a $250-a-plate Obama Victory Fund fundraiser in Des Moines April 24. The fund is a fundraising committee authorized by Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee.
