Rapper Cardi B has, in the past few weeks, become a political pundit of sorts on the left. As a possible result, the Bronx singer has been invited by Democrats in Iowa to give a speech in Des Moines.
The Polk County Democrats, who usually meet with presidential candidates, have invited the singer to a “reception of her choice” while she’s in town for a musical performance.
Cardi B has spoken about politics in the past, using her stardom to endorse Bernie Sanders’ campaign and repeatedly condemn the Trump administration’s actions.
She may not be old enough to run for the White House, but rapper Cardi B is certainly making an impression on Iowa Democrats.
Which could be why the Polk County Democrats, a group known for setting up events for presidential candidates during election seasons, might have invited the Bronx singer to deliver a speech in Des Moines later this year.
On Tuesday, the Polk County Democrats tweeted that the group would host “a reception of her choice” for Cardi while she’s in town.
The group said they have been honored to feature a group of “powerful women leaders” in the recent months, including Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, and Kirsten Gillibrand. It only makes sense, they said, that Cardi B should stop by and speak to Iowa Democrats too.
