"Mayor Pete" will campaign in Iowa this weekend, including two stops in the eastern part of the state. Pete Buttigieg is the mayor of South Bend Indiana, and also one of the many Democrats competing for next year's presidential nomination. 

He'll make two stops Friday in central Iowa, then Saturday afternoon hold a town hall meeting in Iowa City at 1 pm at the Wildwood Smokehouse and Saloon, followed by a meet-and-greet event at 4 in Dubuque at the 7 Hills Brewing Company. 

This will be his second trip to Iowa since announcing his candidacy for president one month ago, and the fourth visit to the state this year. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
