Hillary Clinton is making two stops in Iowa on Friday. The Democratic nominee will campaign in Cedar Rapids and the Des Moines area.
At both of the Iowa Democratic Party “Women Win” early vote rallies, Clinton will lay out what is at stake in November and urge Iowans to vote early.
The first rally will be held in Cedar Rapids at the NewBo City Market Courtyard. Doors open at 11:15 a.m., with the event slated to start at 1:15 p.m.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards, EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock, and NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue will also speak at the event.
Those interested in attending can RSVP on Clinton’s website.
GOP nominee Donald Trump appears to have the advantage in Iowa with a 1.4-point lead, according to the latest Real Clear Politics poll average. President Obama won Iowa in 2008 and 2012, but George W. Bush carried the state in 2004.
Nationally, Clinton holds a 4.4-point lead over Trump, according to the Real Clear Politics poll average.
Early voting is showing some signs of strength for Clinton that matches most recent polling.
States only report early voting by party affiliation and not actual vote tallies, however voter registration gives Democrats the early edge.
As the Associated Press reports, 13.4 million voters have already cast their ballots and strong early-voting turnout by registered Democrats shows Clinton has the advantage in critical battleground states, as well as signs of strength in traditionally Republican states.
