Those pushing to get President Barack Obama re-elected are targeting Council Bluffs.
Wednesday, former President Bill Clinton made his first appearance of the day in western Iowa. He spoke to a crowd at the Mid-America Center just after 9:00 a.m.
It was the first of three stops on a whirl-wind tour of the state. He also hit Mason City and Waterloo.
His half hour long address in Council Bluffs resembled a pep talk in which Clinton took aim at Mitt Romney’s strategies.
A few days before Governor Romney made his 12 million jobs promise, two business groups, having nothing to do with political parties, Moody’s Analytics and Microeconomic Advisors said in the next four years the economy will produce 5 million jobs if we don’t mess up what President Obama has already done.”
Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden will be in Iowa stumping for the president. Biden will hold two rallies: one in Muscatine, the other in Fort Dodge.
