DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton is coming to Iowa to campaign for Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley.

Braley’s campaign announced Friday that Clinton will appear at two events on Nov. 1. He will speak at a rally in Des Moines and then at Braley’s annual “Bruce, Blues and BBQ” fundraiser in Waterloo.

According to a news release, Clinton will talk about the importance of voting in a midterm election and will urge Iowans to cast their ballots early.

Braley, a four-term congressman from Waterloo, is locked a close race against Republican Joni Ernst, a state lawmaker and officer in the Iowa National Guard from Red Oak. The two are competing for the seat long held by retiring Democrat Tom Harkin. It is one of the most competitive races in the nation.
