Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is expected to travel to Iowa this fall to be featured as the guest speaker at the Polk County Republican’s fall dinner, the Des Moines Register reported Tuesday.
The event on Nov. 7 will be Perry’s first appearance in Iowa since his unsuccessful bid in the 2012 presidential election. The Texas governor announced in July that he would not seek a fourth term, but did not rule out a potential 2016 presidential campaign.
