Rand Paul is headed to Iowa.

The Kentucky Republican is traveling to the early presidential nominating state this weekend after a recent poll shows the senator leading the Republican field in Iowa in a hypothetical 2016 match-up.

“Senator Rand Paul will be in Iowa to meet with leaders of the Evangelical, African American and Latino communities,” spokesman Sergio Gor said.

Last week, Paul told The Daily Caller he will make a decision on a presidential run after the 2014 elections.

“We’ll be — for the next year, year and a half — doing some traveling, going to some of the early primary states, talking about how we would grow the party bigger, what we would do differently if and when we were the nominee. That kind of thing,” Paul told TheDC.
