WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Republican and Democratic presidential front runners will be in Iowa Wednesday.

Hillary Clinton will be in Mount Vernon at Cornell College, while Donald Trump will be at the Electric Park Ballroom in Waterloo.

Trump hasn't officially made a stop in Waterloo yet. He was here in April, but that was a small private event before he declared his candidacy.

Mr. Trump will begin speaking at noon on Wednesday, but his crew began setting up Tuesday morning.

The state campaign director wanted to have the event at the Electric Park Ballroom because of the neat history and it's an iconic Black Hawk County venue.

The venue holds about 12 hundred people.

"If instead of planning this stop and the next stop, next stop, next stop, next stop we do one big event. We coral all these people, we find out caucus captains, we make that one big gigantic organization and we got the rest of these days to follow up on those," said Chuck Laudner, Trump Campaign State Director.
