DES MOINES, Iowa -- Governor Kim Reynolds will welcome America’s second lady to Iowa later this month for her annual Harvest Festival fundraiser.

Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, was announced as the special guest for the event scheduled for Sept. 21 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
