For the first time during the 2020 election cycle, President Trump and Joe Biden head to Iowa Today to campaign in the same state on the same day.
USA Today reports, Biden is scheduled to hold events in Clinton, Davenport, Mt. Pleasant, and Ottumwa during his Iowa visit Tuesday and Wednesday, a whirlwind trip that has him scheduled to stump through a wide swath of the state over roughly 24 hours.
Trump is scheduled to attend a GOP fundraiser in West Des Moines and visit an ethanol plant in Council Bluffs during his visit. The president is expected to tout his administration’s new E15 gasoline rule for ethanol, a policy change that is viewed as a boon for Iowa’s farmers since it allows year-round use of the corn-based fuel. He’ll be joined by Rep. Cindy Axne, a freshman Democrat who represents Iowa’s 3rd District, on the plant tour.
