Former President Bill Clinton will be in Iowa September 13th to be the headliner at Senator Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry fundraiser. Harkin says Clinton is “going to be a great stimulant for Iowa Democrats and for Democrats everywhere.” Harkin describes it as Clinton’s kick-off appearance for the next campaign, and Harkin predicts Clinton will “be a powerful force in articulating the main issue” for Democrats — the economy. Harkin says Clinton left behind federal budget surpluses as far as the eye could see and had record job creation during his two terms in office, and the Bush Administration — in Harkin’s words — “has squandered the whole thing.” It will be Clinton’s third appearance at Harkin’s steakfry. Harkin’s expecting five- to seven-thousand people at the event which will be held on the balloon grounds near Indianola. The nine candidates who’re vying for the Democratic party’s next presidential nomination are welcome to attend, Harkin says. Harkin has held a fall fundraiser in each of the last 25 years.
