Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, one of Hillary Clinton's national campaign chairs, is returning to Iowa to campaign for her, the Daily News reports. It is caucus day, so there's not much campaigning left to do.

He was in Iowa the 29th-31st, came back to LA, and now he's off again. What exactly is he doing there? Is Hillary's campaign so worried about her numbers that they've put out an all-hands-on-deck, now or never call? Is he there to try to make nice to the Hispanic voters of Iowa -- 3.8%, just 37,000 people? If he's hoping to avoid the slightly crummy LA weather, well, he's heading for a high of 28 degrees.

This LAister thinks that Villaraigosa is making himself very available for Hillary's VP slot. Hillary and Tony would fit on a bumper sticker so nicely. And they look so cute together.

Anyway, he'll be returning to us soon (unless he's headed to New Hampshire).
