Iowa Republican mistakenly pitches Democrats
Republican congressional candidate gets mixed up, speaks to Democratic convention in Iowa
By The Associated Press

ALBIA, Iowa (AP) ' A Republican congressional candidate says he's learned to double check his campaign schedule after he mistakenly spoke at a Democratic convention in Iowa.

Dan Dolan told the Quad-City Times (http://bit.ly/A8c9GR) he arrived early Saturday at the county courthouse in Albia for a Republican convention. He says his staffer asked the crowd if he could speak, and when he finished, "a guy raises his hand and says, 'I think you want to talk to the Republicans.'"

Turns out, Democrats were meeting in the same place two hours before the Republican event was to start.



Dolan, of Muscatine, Iowa, says everyone was nice about the mix-up, but he now asks "Is this the Republican convention?" before he starts talking.

Dolan is running for the GOP nomination for Iowa's 2nd Congressional District seat.
