Romney to visit Iowa today

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Six months from the election, the presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney is paying a visit Iowa's capital.

He will speak Tuesday at 2 p.m. at Hotel Fort Des Moines. The speech is expected to cover debt and government spending.

Romney plans to fight for Iowa's six electoral votes in what's being called a battleground state. Romney has been to the Hawkeye State since the First in the Nation Caucus.

President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and their wives have already visited Iowa this year. The Democratic ticket launched its fifth campaign ad in the state on Monday.
