DES MOINES, Iowa– Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is arranged to check out Iowa next week to project for Democrats as he weighs a project for the 2020 governmental election. Iowa holds the leadoff caucus in the presidential race.

According to a news release from the Iowa Democratic Celebration, McAuliffe is the visitor at the first in a series of citizen outreach occasions targeted at encouraging turnout for the Nov. 6 election.

McAuliffe, a previous Democratic National Committee chairman, has actually been in touch with some influential Democratic operatives in Iowa and nationally who state he is seriously considering a 2020 campaign.

The announcement follows last week’s announcement that New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, also weighing a 2020 campaign, is arranged to headline the Iowa Democratic Celebration’s marquee fall fundraising event on Oct. 6.
