While traveling in Iowa this week, Republican Presidential candidate and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has been critical of an upcoming White House visit from Chinese President Xi Jinping. Iowa Governor Terry Branstad has a longtime friendship with the Chinese leader which makes for a unique situation for the G-O-P candidate who’s investing a lot of his campaign time in Iowa.

Iowa Public Radio’s Clay Masters talks with the Washington Post’s Jenna Johnson, who’s covering Walker’s campaign, about some of the ways Walker is altering his campaign strategy.
