Ron Paul announced a five-city Iowa bus tour next week with his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, as part of an increasingly intense straw poll effort aimed at coming in strong at Ames.

Paul himself said that coming in at anything less than third place would be a disappointment on Tuesday, the first time he’s publicly pegged his expectations. But after years of dominating smaller, less contested straw polls, Paul’s facing a new situation at Ames.
