Martin O'Malley To Speak At Caucus Candidate Forum Series

July 10, 2015

The 2016 Iowa Caucus Consortium is pleased to announce that former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley will speak at the Caucus Candidate Forum Series on Friday, July 24. The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the State Historical Building. Registration is not required but is encouraged. To register, click here. Media members interested in attending should contact Kyle Oppenhuizen at koppenhuizen@DSMpartnership.com

The Caucus Candidate Forum Series is an effort to allow Greater Des Moines (DSM) community members and business leaders to learn about and interact with presidential candidates. The Consortium has offered the opportunity to all presidential candidates and potential candidates from both sides of the political aisle to speak at the Forum Series during the coming months. O’Malley’s presentation will be the second in the series. 

Caucus Candidate Forum Series events are free and open to the public. Candidates are allotted 40 minutes to speak to the audience and then open up a question-and-answer session for 15-20 minutes. Note that free parking is available in the parking ramp on the corner of East Grand Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue. Due to the nature of political campaigns, future forum dates, times and speakers will be announced as they are booked. 

The Caucus Candidate Forum Series is one of many efforts of the Iowa Caucus Consortium to highlight Iowa’s first in the nation Caucuses. Find more information about Consortium events and educational resources at IowaCaucus.org.
