DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Monday former Iowa governor Chet Culver was back on the stump in Des Moines as President Obama's heartland tour kicked off in Iowa.  Obama will be back in Iowa on Tuesday.

During Monday's event, Culver talked about jobs.

"We will be highlighting as the Republicans gather in Tampa for their convention here in the Heartland and here in Iowa, across the Midwest, we're going to focus on the choice in this election.  We're going to focus on issues that matter the most to Iowans here in the Heartland starting with jobs.  We're very proud of the fact that since March of 2010 President Obama has helped create 4.3 million jobs.  20,000 new manufacturing jobs for example right here in Iowa.  He helped save the auto industry.  In Iowa we employ 9,000 people... 9,000 jobs in the auto industry."
