Rep. Tom Price (R- Ga.) will go to Iowa later this month for two political events, the Iowa GOP announced Thursday.

Price, the chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC), will travel to the state for two events on Mon., Feb. 22.

Price will headline a breakfast in Sioux Center and a lunch in Sioux City in Iowa, a state that's home to the first presidential nominating contests. A lawmaker's trip to events like the ones Price will attend can signal that he is testing the waters for a run for the White House.

“Iowans will be able to relate to Congressman Price," Iowa Republican Party Chairman Matt Strawn said in a statement. "He knows that government interference doesn’t always make something better. And he’s putting forth principled solutions for issues that Iowans care about, like healthcare."

As chairman of the RSC, Price has led the charge from the House GOP's conservative flank against Democratic priorities.

And while Strawn didn't mention any presidential tinge to Price's visit, he did note in his statement that the areas the Georgia lawmaker will visit constitute a "critical battleground for Iowa Republicans."
