Obama cancels CU appearance due to flooding
ST. LOUIS (6/13/08)--Among the events canceled due to this week's floods was an appearance by Barack Obama at a credit union in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Democratic presidential contender had been campaigning in smaller venues, and did some job shadowing at a St. Louis hospital, reported the Associated Press (June 11). According to the article, Obama planned "a similar workplace event Wednesday at a credit union in Cedar Rapids, but flooding forced him to cancel." The credit union was not named. The Obama campaign consulted with Iowa Gov. Chet Culver's staff and decided to cancel to ensure no resources would be diverted from Iowans devastated by the floods (Gazette Online (June 10)
