Obama for America Iowa announced that President Obama will hold the May 24th grassroots event at the Paul R. Knapp Animal Learning Center at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. Thursday’s event is the President’s first campaign grassroots event in Iowa of this election cycle.
The grassroots event is open to the public, and no tickets are required. Space will be first come, first served. Doors will open at 4:30 PM CST. The address for the Iowa State Fairgrounds is 3000 East Grand Ave., Des Moines, IA 50317, and guests should enter using the main entrance to the fair grounds at the intersection of East 30th St. and East Grand Ave.
“We are excited President Obama is coming back to host a grassroots event in Iowa,” said State Treasurer Mike Fitzgerald. “In Iowa, we have seen firsthand the choice in November as the President is fighting for the middle class and creating a pro-growth economy that is built to last and Mitt Romney, whose economic theories are based on outsourcing and tax breaks for the wealthy and biggest corporations that undercut middle class Iowans.”
