Former Republican Senator Scott Brown is heading to Iowa next month to keynote the Scott County Republican Party’s Reagan Dinner, taking his presidential ambitions on the road once more.
Brown said last month that he was exploring the possibility of a presidential bid in 2016 when he attended the Iowa State Fair, a favorite haunt of would-be presidential candidates. The Massachusetts Republican pulled off a surprise win in a 2010 special election to become a Senator, then lost his seat last year to now Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
The dinner will take place on November 12 in Bettendorf, Iowa. Tickets cost $50.
The announcement from the Scott County Republican Party does not mention Brown’s presidential ambitions, but instead focuses on the upcoming 2014 election.
“We look forward to hearing from Senator Brown as we focus on the 2014 election and one of the most important Senate elections not only in Iowa but in the country!” the announcement reads. Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin is retiring at the end of his term, launching a competitive battle for the open seat.
Brown is one of many presidential potentials making the rounds in the Hawkeye State. Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have both made multiple trips, Sen. Marco Rubio keynoted Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad’s birthday party fundraiser last November, and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan will keynote the fundraiser this November. On the Democratic side, Vice President Joe Biden is headed to the state for Harkin’s annual Steak Fry later this month, and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar traveled to the state last month.
