PAUL J. RICHARDS/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Rick Santorum, the belated winner of this year’s Iowa caucuses, will be traveling back to Iowa next month to thank the voters who vaulted him to the top of the GOP primaries.

Santorum will host two “Thank you, Iowa” events on July 10 and 11. The first will be a lunch in Iowa City and then the next day a picnic in Windsor Heights, according to Matt Beynon, spokesperson for the Red, White, and Blue Fund. The events are free and open to the public.

The RWB Fund is Santorum’s hybrid political action committee and is hosting the events. During his primary campaign, the RWB Fund served as his superPAC, but now acts as his leadership PAC, promoting his political endeavors as well.

Beynon tells ABC News more Iowa events will be added closer to the event dates.

The trip will undoubtedly bring on speculation that the at times-tepid backer of Mitt Romney is interested in another run and is starting out early.

The Iowa events were first reported by Politico.
