Rick Perry headed to Iowa on Sunday

After his stops on Saturday in New Hampshire and South Carolina (where he's expected to announce his presidential intentions), Rick Perry heads to Iowa the next day, the Des Moines Register reports.

And it's the day after the Ames Straw Poll.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will speak Sunday at a fundraiser hosted by the Black Hawk County Republicans, his campaign has confirmed. The Lincoln Day Dinner event in Waterloo will mark Perry’s first visit to Iowa as a potential 2012 presidential candidate.

According to Politico, Perry also will make another trip back to New Hampshire next Wednesday, speaking at its Politics and Eggs event.
