Big names from both parties are visiting the state in the final weeks before the November 4th election. Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul is in Iowa to rally support for Republican candidates up and down the ticket. Speaking today at the University of Northern Iowa on behalf of First District candidate Rod Blum, Paul says he believes Republicans will do well in the upcoming election..
“In Kentucky where I’m from, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate can’t remember who she voted for for President, and then you come to Iowa and everybody comes here campaigning for the Democrat but they can’t remember his name either, ” Paul says, “I really do wish the best to Bruce Bailey well, I hope that Bruce Bailey does well.”
Paul was making reference to an appearance by First Lady Michele Obama earlier this month when she called Bruce Braley “Bruce Bailey.” Senator Paul has several appearances scheduled in the next day and a half including one to endorse Republican Joni Ernst in the U.S. Senate race.
Texas Governor Rick Perry will be in Marion tomorrow for a campaign rally with Ernst. Braley’s campaign reports Vice President Joe Biden will appear with Braley in Davenport on Monday.
