Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis reportedly plans to next week make his first visit to Iowa, the first state in the GOP's 2024 presidential nomination process.

DeSantis is expected to make an announcement later this year about whether he'll run.

He has scheduled events for March 10 in the eastern Iowa city of Davenport and the state capital, Des Moines, to promote his new book, "The Courage to be Free," according to the Associated Press. 

Two aides to Republican officials on Thursday confirmed DeSantis' plans, the wire service also reports.

Former President Trump has already announced his reelection bid and plans to visit Iowa, in which residents select their top candidate by caucusing, later this month.

Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who last month announced her candidacy was in Iowa in late February and plans to return next week to host two town hall event and to participate in a foreign policy event, also according to the Associated Press.
