By Ed Tibbetts, Quad-City Times
Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president in 2012, will be in Davenport and Cedar Rapids on Friday, May 30, to campaign for GOP Senate hopeful Joni Ernst.
Romney, who finished second in the 2012 Iowa caucuses, endorsed Ernst earlier in the five-way race for the nomination to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Tom Harkin.
Details of the events will be announced soon, the Ernst campaign said in a news release. The stops will be open to the public.
Ernst is running in the June 3 primary against retired energy executive Mark Jacobs, former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker, college professor Sam Clovis and sales professional Scott Schaben.
