Politically Speaking: Culver won't make Obama event
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
Barack Obama is holding a discussion with Democratic governors
tomorrow in Chicago, but Iowa Gov. Chet Culver won't make the event.
Obama wants to discuss non-Washington centered ways to pump up the
economy, so he's going to pick the brains of governors. Dealing with
the flooding situation in Iowa, however, will prevent Culver from
participating with the Dem Party presumptive presidential nominee.
Culver has been playing his schedule close to the vest, not going out
beyond the next day. We just learned at 5:30 p.m. that he'll be
kicking off an agricultural flood damage tour tomorrow morning at
roughly the same time Obama holds his event. Then Iowa Lt. Gov. Patty
Judge and Iowa ag industry officials will have more sessions
throughout the state.
