VP Pence to Campaign for Blum in Cedar Rapids

Pence

Dubuque’s representative in Congress will be getting an assist from the nation’s second-in-command this week. Vice President Mike Pence will campaign for Congressman Rod Blum in Cedar Rapids tomorrow. According to Blum’s office, Pence will tour Rockwell Collins while he’s in Cedar Rapids. It’s not clear whether the public will be able to attend the event. Blum says he’s looking forward to Pence’s visit so he can discuss issues with the Vice President. In response to the visit, Blum’s opponent this fall, Dubuque state legislator Abby Finkenauer issued a statement where she accused Blum of putting politics ahead of Iowans’ needs. Her statement reads, in part, “Unless Rod Blum is hosting a meeting between the Vice President and our soybean and corn farmers and pork producers, where they can personally tell the administration how their trade war is devastating to Iowa families, then he’s not doing his job.”
