IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -
The president and his running mate and their mates have scheduled a post-convention trip to Iowa.
Campaign officials say President Barack Obama and the first lady, Michelle Obama, will be accompanied by Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, when they visit Iowa City on Friday. Obama is scheduled to make his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday night.
The four are expected to visit New Hampshire first on Friday morning before flying to Iowa, one of the tossup states in this year's general election. Details about their Iowa City itinerary haven't been released.
It will be the president's eighth trip to Iowa this year. He stopped in Ames on Tuesday and attended events in Urbandale and Sioux City on Saturday.
