(CNN) – Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is heading back to New Hampshire next weekend. It will be the third visit this year by the freshman Republican senator and potential 2016 presidential contender to the state that holds the first primary in the race for the White House.
According to a source close to the senator, Cruz will speak at the Hillsborough County Republican Committee Primary Dinner on September 6. Another potential 2016 contender, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, will also give remarks at the dinner.
The next day, Cruz will hold events in the southern part of the state.
Cruz was last in New Hampshire in late April, when he keynoted the Carroll County Republican Committee fundraising dinner and headlined an event by Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire. Earlier that month Cruz spoke at a "Freedom Summit" in the Granite State, which was organized by Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.
Cruz, popular among tea party conservatives, also made swings earlier this month and in March through Iowa, the state that kicks off the presidential caucus and primary calendar. And he's also visited South Carolina, which holds the first southern contest.
