Culver announces farewell tour next week

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Chet Culver has announced that he will go on a farewell tour of the state next week to thank Iowans for the opportunity to serve them.

Culver lost his bid for re-election to Republican Gov.-elect Terry Branstad.

The two-day tour will start on Wednesday with stops in Council Bluffs, Sioux City, Mason City and Dubuque. It will continue on Thursday with stops in Davenport, Iowa City, Cedar Rapids and Des Moines.

Culver will remain governor until Branstad is sworn in on Jan. 14.
