DES MOINES, Iowa -- Hillary Clinton supporters just got a fundraising e-mail in their inboxes from campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle. It describes a thrilling rally of supporters in "Arkney, Iowa."
"I know Hillary was on the stump in Arkney, Iowa last week, winning over a standing-room-only audience and drawing sharp contrasts between her vision and those of her opponents," writes Doyle in her appeal to readers to help raise $1.25 million this week.
This would all be fine and good if there WAS an Arkney, Iowa.
The town she means is ANKENY, Iowa, a suburb north of Des Moines. Clinton was there last Wednesday and did address a standing-room only crowd, which had waited for more than two hours for the senator's late arrival due to plane delays.
Ankeny, with a population of over 30,000, is the 11th largest city in Iowa.
Typos certainly happen all the time in these memos, and it's not fair to draw too sweeping of a conclusion about the state of the race from two dyslexically inverted letters. But it's pretty clear there wasn't a set of Iowa-savvy eyes on this one before it went out.
