Vice President Mike Pence will stop in Iowa to campaign with Rep. Rod Blum.

Pence will visit and tour Rockwell Collins with Blum on Wednesday after he attends a campaign event in Kansas City earlier in the day.

"Rockwell Collins is a leader in aviation and high-integrity solutions for commercial and military customers around the world-- and the largest employer in the First District," Blum said in a release. "I am glad that Vice President Pence will be able to join us to see their technology first hand and meet with employees."

Blum, who has been a Congressman since 2014, is in the middle of a campaign where he is challenged by Abby Finkenauer, a 28-year-old state representative.
