Rand Paul To Iowa In April

Lately, it seems the Pauls are raising their profile in the Hawkeye State.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will be in Iowa to be the keynote speaker at the Iowa Republican Party's "Night of the Rising Stars" event on April 2 in Des Moines, state Republican Party chairman Matt Strawn announced Wednesday.

The event is a fundraiser for the state party that is also billed as a showcase for Iowa's newly elected GOP leaders. But Paul's spokesperson is cautioning not to read too much into the trip.

"Senator Paul is going Iowa to do two things: Talk about his book, 'The Tea Party Goes to Washington,' and then to help talk about what the Tea Party is looking for in 2012. He is hoping to start a conversation, and is not running for anything," Paul spokesperson Gary Howard said.

Meanwhile, Rand Paul's father, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), who has kept the door ajar for another presidential bid, will be in the state later this month for a lecture series with conservative group "The Family Leader."
