Marco Rubio will return to Iowa later this month for a Reagan Day dinner and to campaign with U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst.

Rubio will speak at the Scott County GOP's dinner on Oct. 28. And while it hasn't been announced, he'll also campaign with Ernst, who has a good shot at taking the open seat.

Rubio was last in Iowa in August to campaign with Ernst, and and before that in June. The potential 2016 presidential candidate has also dispatched his staff to help Ernst. Earlier this week he was in New Hampshire to campaign with Scott Brown; Rubio will go back to the Granite State later this month as well.
