Daschle to stump for Obama in Iowa

Daschle will campaign in Iowa Saturday for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois.

DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle will head to the first-in-the-nation caucus state this weekend to campaign for Sen. Barack Obama, the Illinois Democrat's presidential campaign announced Friday.

The South Dakota Democrat, who served as his party's leader in the Senate from 1995 until losing reelection in 2004, officially endorsed Obama in February.

At a rally on Saturday in Des Moines, Daschle will join former Rep. Brad Carson, D-Oklahoma, and former Mississippi Gov. Ray Mabus. The campaign is billing this event as a "red state Democrats" rally. The three Demcorats are from states that are traditionally more Republican-leaning.

    If Tom Daschle doesn't care about how long Barack has been in the Senate, I don't know why the rest of you should.
