More Details to Follow.

It was not announced if more stops would be added, but speculation runs high that perhaps one or two more may be squeezed into the schedule.

Of course, nothing seems to run on time in a campaign schedule, so perhaps that view is too optimistic.

The Thompson bus tour is an attention-grabbing way for the candidate to meet as many voters as possible during the last days leading up to the Iowa caucuses.
