Northwest Iowa — One of the presidential hopefuls from the huge field of Republicans is going to be in northwest Iowa on Thursday. Dr. Ben Carson is an American author and retired Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon.
His trip to this area will start out with a fundraising event in Sioux Falls, SD on Wednesday night, June 24th. Then Dr. Carson will be doing a Western Iowa tour on Thursday, June 25th starting in Rock Rapids.
He’ll be at Rock Rapids’ Frontier Bank at 8:00 AM at 301 First Avenue (That’s Highway 9). The event is open to the public and there will be a short question and answer time.
Then it’s on to Sioux Center. Dr. Carson will be at The Fruited Plain, starting at 9:30 AM. The Fruited Plain is at 172 North Main Avenue (that’s Highway 75) in Sioux Center. Again it’s open to the public and there will be a question and answer time.
Both of the appearances are open to the public. Dr. Carson will also make a private stop in Orange City. Then it’s on to Sioux City, Missouri Valley and Council Bluffs to end the day with another fundraiser.
Campaign officials say Dr. Carson is planning another trip to the area at some point too.
