Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour was in Iowa in mid-February. He came back on the Ides of March (that would be March 15) to visit with a few groups and individuals in Des Moines before trekking over to Iowa’s east coast. He’s the headliner tonight for an Iowa Republican Party fundraiser in Davenport.
Barbour explained earlier today that his primary goal in Iowa is to explain to Iowans “what a Haley Barbour is.”
Barbour was the “host” of the luncheon for the Iowa Federation of Republican Women meeting at the statehouse in Des Moines, which means he bought lunch. He joked the sandwiches, chips, cookies and Pepsi products proved he was a conservative “because lunch was so cheap.”
