Montana Gov. Steve Bullock will travel to Iowa at the end of this week to further test a presidential run, his Big Sky Values PAC told  Politico  Tuesday.

Bullock will be escorted by Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller to meet with local Democrats in Des Moines and other cities, the online publication reported.

Bullock has twice made trips to Iowa, home of the nation’s first presidential caucuses, in  April  and  August , which ratcheted up speculation of a possible candidacy. He also gave a speech last summer in  New Hampshire , which has the nation’s first presidential primary.

Bullock has not officially announced he’s running for president. If he did, he’d join a crowded field for the Democratic nomination to challenge President Donald Trump.

About a half dozen candidates have already declared, and as many as two dozen are mulling a run, according to media reports.
