WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) – Iowa continues to be a must-see destination for presidential hopefuls, and a returning candidate has perhaps the closest commute to the Hawkeye State from now until next February’s first-in-the-nation caucus.
Minnesota U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar will return to eastern Iowa this weekend for a round of meet and greets, while also getting involved in a local special election that is heating up. Sen. Klobuchar says she’ll start the weekend visit by be door-knocking alongside Black Hawk County Democrats on behalf of District 30 candidate Eric Giddens on Saturday morning. Election day for the District 30 race is next Tuesday in Cedar Falls, Hudson and parts of Waterloo.
Later in the day on Saturday, Sen. Klobuchar will host a meet and greet in Dubuque at 7 Hills Brewing Company, while also speaking at another meet and greet in Davenport on Sunday.
