Live blog: Nuns on the Bus tour kicks off in Iowa

Social Service Sr. Simone Campbell, the well-known executive director of NETWORK, will kick off will the third Nuns on the Bus tour Wednesday with a 10 a.m. CDT rally at the Iowa State Capitol with her team and guest speaker Vice President Joe Biden. Titled "We the People, We the Voters," this year's bus tour will focus on civic engagement and voter registration in 36 U.S. cities in 10 key states from Iowa to Colorado.

I will be covering the rally all morning with live updates here and on Twitter, with a news story on Global Sisters Report later Wednesday afternoon. After the rally, our U.S. sisters liaison, Franciscan Sr. Jan Cebula, will be blogging daily from the Iowa leg of the tour, so be sure to check back often for her updates from the road.
