From KCCI-TV’s Web Site:
DES MOINES, Iowa — Presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama is canceling a scheduled trip to Cedar Rapids.
Obama had planned to hold an economic forum on Wednesday morning. The stop was part of a two-week economic tour.
Obama’s campaign said the visit is being canceled so that no resources are diverted from flood relief efforts throughout the state.
Obama’s campaign said it spoke to members of Gov. Chet Culver’s staff before making the decision to cancel the event.
It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. A good follow-up might be “Obama is considering a visit to flooded areas of Iowa”. A good opportunity to start connecting emotionally with the community like Bill Clinton did in 1993.
