UNDATED - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will make two stops in Iowa in March as part of his nationwide book tour, following visits by fellow 2012 GOP hopefuls Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty.

Romney’s second book, “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness,” is due out March 2, and the promotional tour will take the former GOP presidential candidate to 18 states. Romney will visit first in the nation Iowa on March 29, signing books at the Des Moines Central Library and making a speech at Iowa State University, located in Ames.

Romney has not scheduled book signings in either of the other early GOP caucus or primary states — New Hampshire or South Carolina — so far.

Like Palin’s whirlwind book tour, Romney’s is being organized by his publisher, St. Martin’s Press, which is printing 200,000 copies of his book. HarperCollins printed 1.5 million for Palin’s first run, more than a million of which she sold in just more than a week.

And like Romney’s planned stop, Palin visited Iowa late in her book tour — making it the 11th state on the tour.

Huckabee has been to Iowa numerous times since the end of the 2008 campaign to stump for GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Vander Plaats — a former Iowa campaign hand whom Huckabee endorsed in July — and to promote both of his books, “Do the Right Thing” and “A Simple Christmas.”

Pawlenty, the governor of Minnesota, meanwhile made a trip to the Hawkeye State in November, when he headlined an Iowa Republican Party event at the state fairgrounds.

Mitt received financial support from George Soros in his last bid for the republican nomination. I'll not vote for any candidate who accepts money from enemies of our country.

I don't know if Mitt will be able to answer your question Katie, but I will....

It's actually doing pretty well.... it has a few wrinkles that need to be worked out,(just like most new programs) but people are finally responsible for paying for their own medical expenses and not passing it on to other tax payers or causing those who do have insurance to pay higher premiums to cover the uninsured (gosh, what a concept)...

Works just like car insurance... Don't have an accident without it or you will be in trouble... Or, in this case, don't get hurt or have to go to the hospital without insurance or you might be in some trouble.

BTW, thanks for asking.

Oh no, not another bid for the White House. Is this all these people do, go to book signings and talk shows? Ask him how his health care plan is doing in Massachusetts?
