DES MOINES, Iowa — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will attend a conservative political event in Iowa this month.

Organizers of the Iowa Freedom Summit announced Thursday that Walker will participate. The Jan. 24 event in Des Moines is being sponsored by Citizens United and Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa.

Walker, a Republican recently re-elected to a second term, is weighing a 2016 presidential bid. Spokesman Tom Evenson said in a statement that Walker was looking forward to "sharing the story of Wisconsin's successful reforms."

Walker was last in Iowa in September for an economic conference.

Other confirmed guests for the summit include New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
