MARION — It appears that President Obama will make at least one more stop in Linn County before the Nov. 6 election.
Sources have confirmed that the president’s campaign is looking into staging an event Oct. 17 either in Cedar Rapids or in Mount Vernon, most likely at Cornell College.
It will be his second visit to Eastern Iowa in six weeks. The president attended a rally in Iowa City Sept. 7. Since June, he’s made 13 visits to Iowa, according to the Washington Post candidate tracker.
Although sources would not speak on the record, they said advance teams are or soon will be looking at venues for a presidential visit.
The campaign would not confirm the visit.
The president has visited Cedar Rapids twice this year. He spoke at Conveyor Engineering & Manufacturing the day after delivering the annual State of the Union speech to Congress and returned for a speech at Kirkwood Community College in July.
