President Obama announces return trip to Iowa


President Barack Obama plans to return to Iowa to give an economic speech in Newton.

The Thursday visit will be the President's third trip to the state this year. The official White House visit will include a stop in Des Moines to meet with campaign supporters. 

Iowa is considered one of the battleground states in the race between President Obama and the presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Mr. Obama carried Iowa in the 2008 election.

The Obama campaign has already spent $2.5 million on television advertising in Iowa. This week, Obama unveiled a two minute spot attacking Romney.
