White House officials say President Barack Obama will host a rural economic forum on August 16 at a community college in northeast Iowa.
The Democratic president and members of his cabinet plan to visit Northeast Iowa Area Community College in Peosta, as part of a three-day Midwestern bus tour. The White House announced the Iowa visit on Friday.
The forum will include local business owners and rural development leaders to discuss ideas to spur the economy in small towns.
Obama was last in Iowa in June, visiting an aluminum manufacturing plant that had added jobs.
The latest visit will come on the heels of the Aug. 13 Republican presidential straw poll. That event is an early test of campaign strength in the leadoff caucus state for Obama's would-be GOP challengers.
