Marco Rubio may be on familiar territory during a trip to New Hampshire this week.

Rubio is set to head to the Granite State on Wednesday, according to his campaign. The Florida senator is scheduled to address the New Hampshire House of Representatives on Wednesday morning.

The address could remind campaign watchers of Rubio’s early days in politics. He was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2000 and was House Speaker from 2006 to 2008.

The speech is scheduled for 10:20 a.m. Wednesday at the New Hampshire State House in Concord. Earlier Wednesday, Rubio is set to attend a town-hall meeting Plymouth, New Hampshire.

The swing through New Hampshire comes three weeks before that state’s primary. Rubio is polling in second place in New Hampshire with 12.8 percent. He trails GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who is at 30.4 percent, according to RealClearPolitics.

Rubio isn’t heading just to New Hampshire this week. He’s also campaigning in Iowa and has several town hall meetings scheduled for Monday. The Iowa caucuses are in two weeks on Feb. 1.
