What a day it has been for Dubuque.

And what a day it has been for the Telegraph Herald and its political reporter.

We started hearing whispers late Tuesday evening that President Barack Obama was planning another trip to Dubuque. That was confirmed to us Wednesday morning, and throughout the day more and more details emerged until Obama's campaign staff finally announced official logistics early Wednesday evening.

In the meantime, we also learned via Dubuque Regional Airport that Mitt Romney also plans to campaign in Dubuque on Saturday. As if the President's visit wasn't news enough, what a staggering jolt to learn his challenger will also appear in town on the very same day.

Much like the Obama announcement, details of Romney's event were slow to develop, other than what personnel at the airport knew, which was that a rally would be held at the airport around mid-day.

Late Wednesday evening - about 11 p.m. - the Romney campaign completed our wild day by announcing details of its event, with the added surprise of special guest and NASCAR legend Richard Petty.


So now that we know all the details, and because the online updates throughout the day were so fluid, here in one neat package are the details for both campaign events.

See you Saturday.
