Trump to Keynote Major GOP Event In Iowa

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(DES MOINES, Iowa) -- Let the 2012 flirting continue. The Iowa Republican Party announced Wednesday that Donald Trump will headline the party’s annual Lincoln Dinner on Friday, June 10 in Des Moines. It will be Trump’s first visit to Iowa this caucus season.

“Mr. Trump’s speech at CPAC earlier this year caught the attention of many political observers and as the ‘First in the Nation’ caucus state, we extended an invite to allow Mr. Trump to introduce himself to Iowa Republicans,” Iowa GOP chairman Matt Strawn said in a statement. “We are excited to have Mr. Trump share his vision for a better America through his experiences as an individual who has made a career as an entrepreneur and job creator.” 

This means that Trump will be making stops in both Iowa and New Hampshire in June -- the same month he said he'll make a decision on whether to run.
