Perry Hitting the Road on Iowa Bus Tour
There are three weeks to go until the Iowa Caucus, the first election in the race for the GOP presidential nomination. Governor Rick Perry is trying to win over some voters before then by shaking hands and taking a good old-fashioned bus tour across the Hawkeye State. By the time the tour is over, Perry will have visited about 40 towns and cities.
“Being on a bus in a state like Iowa, it just allows us to get to more stops and more places and allows people on the road, you’re driving down the road in Iowa and people honk and wave and there’s an excitement and an energy,” Perry national campaign manager Rob Johnson said.
KUT’s Ben Philpott is in Iowa reporting on Perry’s final campaign push there. He will also be following Gov. Perry’s bus tour for KUT News and The Texas Tribune. You can get a sneak peak in this video:
