Bad weather in Iowa forced Mitt Romney to cancel campaign events on Saturday..
DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – A winter storm that's been coating cars and roadways with a layer of ice Saturday has kept Sen. Hillary Clinton and former president Bill Clinton out of Iowa, and it's caused former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to cancel his campaign events for the day.
Sen. Clinton was scheduled to speak at the Heartland Presidential Forum in Des Moines, but, according to her campaign, the Democratic presidential candidate will now be giving remarks via telephone. She is also set to participate in the Iowa Brown and Black Presidential Forum in Des Moines Saturday evening. As of this posting, a spokesman with the campaign says they're currently monitoring the airports, and there is no word on whether she'll make that event either.
Former president Clinton was scheduled to attend a rally on his wife's behalf in Norwalk, Iowa, but the campaign has cancelled that event due to "inclement weather."
But weather is bipartisan.
A spokesman for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in a press release that their entire day's schedule in Iowa has been cancelled because of "severe weather, numerous closings, and adverse road conditions."
Des Moines International Airport was closed for about 6 hours Saturday morning but has since reopened.
UPDATE: Delaware Sen. Joe Biden's flight to Des Moines from Chicago was also cancelled Saturday. According to the campaign, he decided to brave the roughly six hour car ride instead.
