  • Washington in a Flash: Off to Iowa

    President Obama continues his barnstorming tour today with a visit to Alcoa’s plant in Davenport, IA. He’ll be making another high-profile pitch for American manufacturing — the second in as many weeks — as he attempts to regain trust on the economy. A new McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll reveals just 37 percent of registered voters approve of his handling of the economy.

    Obama is not the only politician in the Hawkeye State today. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is in Pella, IA, for the premiere of filmmaker Stephen Bannon’s new movie, “The Undefeated.”

    Here in Washington, expected Republicans and Democrats in the Senate to regroup after Obama met yesterday with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

    And at Heritage, we’re hosting Fox News national correspondent Catherine Herridge for a discussion of her new book, “The Next Wave: On the Hunt for Al Qaeda’s American Recruits.” Watch it live online beginning at noon.
