Obama cancels Iowa event due to floods

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Illinois Sen. Barack Obama canceled his town hall in Iowa due to flooding in that state, his campaign announced Tuesday.

Obama was scheduled to speak to voters in Cedar Rapids Wednesday, but the Illinois senator’s campaign decided to cancel the event after a discussion with Iowa Governor Chet Culver's staff, saying they wanted all resources in the state to be focused on flood relief efforts.
