Paul returns to Iowa

Republican presidential hopeful Rand Paul will head back to Iowa.

The Kentucky senator will be in first-in-the-nation caucus state on Friday and Saturday.

He will appear at the Presidential Family Forum in Des Moines, which is hosted by the Family Leader, a Christian conservative advocacy group. He will then travel to eastern Iowa to meet with Davenport voters and also tailgate at the Iowa-Purdue game.

According to the Nov. 6 CNN/ORC poll, only 2 percent of Republican likely caucus-goers said Paul would be their first choice, down 3 percentage points from August. Business mogul Donald Trump led the poll with 25 percent, and former neurosurgeon Ben Carson snared 23 percent.

With 548 Republican likely caucus-goers surveyed, there is a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
