Some well-known political figures will be mingling with the public at this year’s Iowa State Fair.

Some of the highlights include Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Former Iowa Sen. John Culver.

Both parties released their lists today, which could change as others are added.

Not included on the GOP list, for example, is gay civil rights activist Fred Karger.  Karger, a California Republican, is considering a run for president. He told The Register that he plans to campaign at the fair in the afternoon on Aug. 18.
