Obama cancels Iowa visit


DES MOINES (KWWL)-- Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has canceled his trip to Iowa Thursday.

Obama will instead travel to Hawaii to visit his 85 year-old ailing grandmother, who's health situation is very serious.

He was scheduled to attend a rally in Des Moines.

He is expected to return to the campaign tail Saturday, though it's not clear if he will return to Iowa before election day.
