Harris, Castro & Gillibrand to Campaign in Bettendorf

Jul 15, 2019

UPDATE: The event has been relocated to the Quad Cities Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf.

Three presidential candidates will be at an invitation-only forum in Bettendorf Tuesday. Kamala Harris, Julian Castro and Kirsten Gillibrand will have 25 minutes each to speak at the the Quad Cities Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf.

The forum is being held by the AARP and the Des Moines Register. They are holding a number of similar events with other Democratic candidates throughout Iowa this week, including one Monday in Des Moines, Wednesday in Cedar Rapids, Friday in Sioux City, and Saturday in Council Bluffs.

Des Moines Register Opinion Editor Kathie Obradovich and Radio Iowa News Director O. Kay Henderson will co-moderate the forum, where AARP members and the media will both be allowed to ask questions.

Eric Swalwell was originally scheduled to be at the Bettendorf event, but he recently dropped out of the presidential race.
