DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul will visit Iowa next month to campaign for Republican congressional candidate Rod Blum, according to a Wednesday news release from Blum’s campaign.

Blum’s campaign said Paul will appear at a public event at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls on Oct. 22.

Blum is running in the 1st Congressional District against Democrat Pat Murphy. The seat is vacant because four-term congressman Bruce Braley is running for Senate.

Paul has visited the leadoff voting state of Iowa several times over the past two years. In June, he spoke at the state GOP convention. He has been touring the country this year amid speculation about his 2016 presidential plans.
