Obama will appear at an event in October, but the Braley campaign said details on the date and location have not been worked out.

Braley, a four-term congressman from Waterloo, is locked in a tight race with 44-year-old Republican Joni Ernst. They are vying for retiring Senator Tom Harkin’s seat. Harkin, a Democrat, has held the office for 30 years.
