Sanders, O'Malley follow Clinton to Iowa

Democratic presidential candidates Lincoln Chafee, Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley are planning public events in Northwest Iowa. O'Malley's team reported he will speak at noon Sunday in Sioux City before moving on to Carroll.
Additionally, Sanders will hold an event on July 3 in Sheldon. He has spent considerable time campaigning in eastern Iowa since becoming a candidate on May 26. U.S. Sen. Sanders has drawn big crowds of 700 in Des Moines and 500 in Iowa City. Jim Webb, a former Democratic U.S. senator from Virginia, made a Sioux City stop a few weeks ago, but he has not officially entered the race.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is a self-confirmed "Democratic Socialist."
The 73-year-old is considered a long shot but if elected, he would be the oldest person and first Jewish person to serve as commander-in-chief. He was the butt of an Obama joke at this year's White House Correspondents' dinner. "Apparently people really want to see a pot-smoking socialist in the White House," the president said. "We could get a third Obama term after all." [NPR]
A ticket with Hillary Clinton and Minnesota's Al Franken as her veep pick would be formidable against whichever clowns the GOP nominate.

On Tuesday, Secretary Clinton spoke with voters at a church near Ferguson, Missouri.

Webb just bumbled a Facebook post where it appears he defended the flag of slavery.
