(CNN) — Former Rep. Mark Sanford might be weighing getting into the presidential race but he has some key nicknames to keep track of in the meantime.
The South Carolina Republican tweeted about an upcoming trip to Iowa, the first-in-the-nation caucus state — but called it by a nickname for Ohio.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Will be going to Iowa next week and would love your wisdom on local perspectives if you are from the Buckeye state!” he tweeted Thursday afternoon.
