Biden to visit Iowa

Vice President Joe Biden will make his way to the Hawkeye State next week, just days after Hillary Rodham Clinton appears at the Harkin Steak Fry.

Biden will visit Des Moines on Sept. 17 to encourage voter registration on the “We the People, We the Voters” bus tour, which travels across 36 cities.  The tour is sponsored by the National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, and Biden will join the self-proclaimed “Nuns on the Bus” to kick off the tour.

The nuns will hold voter-registration drives, visit Catholic social service sites, and hold town-hall meetings that will allow potential voters to voice their concerns.

The kickoff will be at the Capitol in Des Moines at 10:30 a.m.

Biden visited the Steak Fry last year and made little mention about running for president in 2016.
