Washington in a Flash: Off to Iowa

President Obama continues his barnstorming tour today with a visit to Alcoa’s plant in Davenport, IA [2]. He’ll be making another high-profile pitch for American manufacturing — the second in as many weeks [3] — as he attempts to regain trust on the economy. A new McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll [4] reveals just 37 percent of registered voters approve of his handling of the economy.

Obama is not the only politician in the Hawkeye State [5] today. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is in Pella, IA, for the premiere of filmmaker Stephen Bannon’s new movie, “The Undefeated [6].”

Here in Washington, expected Republicans and Democrats in the Senate to regroup after Obama met yesterday [7] 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 [8].” Watch it live online [9] beginning at noon.
