Trump to talk ethanol, boost candidates at Iowa rally

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — President Donald Trump was traveling to Iowa Tuesday to boost Republican candidates and roll out new summer fuel standards.

Trump's rally in Council Bluffs, across the Missouri river from Omaha, Neb., marked the latest stop on a busy tour campaigning for Republican candidates in the lead-up to November's midterm congressional elections. Trump was expected to try to boost support for GOP Rep. David Young and Gov. Kim Reynolds, who face tough re-election fights.

The event comes as Trump is announcing a long-expected move lifting the federal ban on summer sales of gasoline with high-ethanol blends. The change is a boon for Iowa and other farm states that have pushed for greater sales of the corn-based fuel.

It's also seen as a reward for Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman who led the contentious but successful fight to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Republican Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst praised Trump outside the White House Tuesday afternoon, saying, "Mr. President, thank you so much for maintaining your commitment to Iowa's farmers."
