After holding five fundraisers in his hometown of Chicago, President Obama kicks off a three-day bus tour of Iowa today. Later this morning, he'll head to Iowa by way of Omaha. He'll board Ground Force One, by no means the official name of the bus, and make his way to Council Bluffs, Iowa. Along the way, we expect him to stop for meet and greets with locals in some other towns. He's been known to stop at diners for breakfast or country stores or farmers' markets. Later this evening, he has another campaign event in Boone, Iowa.
