President Obama’s tour of college campuses continues Wednesday with a speech at the University of Iowa in Cedar Rapids. The remarks will be much like those he delivered yesterday at the University of North Carolina and the University of Colorado: an aggressive push for congress to keep student loan rates down.
The speech, Obama’s first since rival Mitt Romney unofficially claimed the GOP nomination Tuesday night, will also feel less like an “official” event and more of a campaign rally. Still, while this latest foray is entirely to states that will play a significant role in November, the president is merely acting in his official capacities, not as a candidate.
It’s a thin line to be sure.
