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.

"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.
