Dean to test presidential waters with stops in Iowa, New Hampshire

The announcement of Dean’s trip to a second early-voting state is sure to fuel speculation that he is weighing another presidential bid, nearly a decade after his unsuccessful 2004 campaign.


In Iowa, Dean is slated to talk about Democracy for America’s “Purple to Blue” program, which is working to turn swing states into Democratic party strongholds.

Next month in New Hampshire, Dean will give a speech entitled “Healthcare in the private sector – reform is still possible,” at the Saint Anselm College New Hampshire Institute of Politics.

Dean finished second in 2004 in the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire Democratic primary before losing the nomination to Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.).
