Vice President Joseph R. Biden will head to Iowa next week, sparking more rumors that he is considering a bid for the Democratic nod in 2016.

Mr. Biden will speak in Des Moines on Thursday, sources familiar with the matter told The Des Moines Register. His office confirmed that he is scheduled to deliver remarks at Drake University and participate in a roundtable discussion at Des Moines Area Community College on college tuition affordability, the Des Moines Register reported Friday.

The news follows reports on a new Iowa Poll that shows Biden falls below both Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren in the race for most popular presidential pick among Democrats in the early caucus state.

Mr. Biden is currently traveling in Europe, meeting with European leaders in Belgium to talk about sanctions against Russia and aid to Ukraine. He will head to Germany next for a security summit, The Des Moines Register reported.
