Biden will take part in a campaign event in Keene on Tuesday.

Romney started this week with a speech in Iowa, at the same downtown Des Moines hotel where he held his caucus night party in January

An Obama campaign official also confirmed to CNN that President Barack Obama will return to Iowa next week as well, with an economic event in Newton and a campaign event in Des Moines.

    Joe's been giving Willard a tongue lashing all week. And poor Willard wants to call it character assassination. Give me a break. You tout your business experience and the VP is exposing you for the out of touch fraud that you are.

    This will give the ne-cons something irrelevant to complain about again. "Campaigning on taxpayer dollar." But, it seems that he is on official business attending an "economic event".

    I’m glad both of them are wearing their flag pins. That takes care of one of the GOPs talking points.

    Sounds like another heavy week of lying and misleading the American people by the most incompetent, inept, corrupt, union toady president we have ever had aided by his hair plugged gaffer. I don't know why the worry so much, the SEIU/ACORN bunch will steal it for them again, why do you thing the corrupt Attorney General is fight so hard against voter ID. He never fought very hard against voter intimidation by the Black Panthers. That is change we can all be blown away by.
