DES MOINES – The Obama Campaign announced that TODAY, Tuesday, October 16, Senator Barack Obama will return to Iowa to unveil his rural policy agenda, Real Leadership for Rural America, on a farm in Fairfax, IA. Senator Obama hosted a rural issues forum in Adel in July and a rural issues summit in Tama in August to talk first hand with Iowans about how their rural communities are responding to the challenges they face. He has incorporated insight from these meetings with Iowans into his agenda to revitalize and strengthen rural America.

Following his rural agenda press conference, Senator Obama will host three town hall meetings to discuss his rural agenda with rural Iowans in Vinton, Amana, and Tipton.
