Booker RV Weekend Campaign Tour

Booker for President 2020

The weekend itinerary for Cory Booker includes several stops in eastern Iowa. The Democratic candidate for president, and New Jersey US Senator, will tour the state in an r-v, starting Friday, and focus on women's health care and flooding by the Mississippi River.

On Saturday he'll campaign first in Keokuk and Burlington, then arrive in Muscatine about 6:30 pm - first to look at flooding with local leaders, then to attend a house party.

Sunday afternoon at 1:45, Booker will meet with local residents in Clinton at the Gateway Community Center, then travel to Dubuque for an evening "Conversation with Cory" at the Smokestack restaurant.

Other stops during the weekend campaign tour include Newton, Chariton, Fairfield, and Urbandale. 

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.
