Cardi B on Thursday asked her fans on Twitter if she should agree to address a group of Iowa Democrats while visiting the state in May.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper was invited to host a “reception of her choice” for the Polk County Democrats when she is in the state’s capitol of Des Moines for a concert. 


The group said in social media that it has hosted “many powerful women leaders” including Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D'Alesandro PelosiThe Hill's Morning Report — Washington readies for Mueller end game Dem divisions deepen over approach to climate change 2020 Dems avoid this year's AIPAC conference MORE (D-Calif.) and former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards.

Sean Bagniewski, the Polk County Democrats chairman, told the Des Moines Register that the group was “definitely serious” about its extended invitation to Cardi B. 

"She speaks to the new activism in the Democratic Party," he said. "It's a long shot, but a little bit of her presence would go a long way."

The entertainer, born Belcalis Almánzar, has made headlines in recent weeks for her political commentary.
