Republican presidential candidate John H. Cox will be bringing his campaign to western Iowa Wednesday, including a stop at Le Mars' Ice Cream Capital of the World Ice Cream Parlor at 5:20 p.m.
Calling himself a "Reagan Republican" from Illinois, Cox became the first Republican to formally enter the presidential race when he threw his hat in the ring in March 2006.
Cox, an attorney and founder of an investment advisory firm, a real estate management company, and a venture capital firm, said he'll be using his "whistlestop tour" to "hear what Iowans have to say."
This tour of 31 Iowa cities will be Cox's 26th trip of his campaign.
Cox's Le Mars event is free and open to the public.
