(CNN) – As Mitt Romney continues his overseas trip in London, two of his prospective vice presidential picks will be touring Iowa, a Romney campaign aide confirmed.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will travel the state on Thursday in one of the campaign’s buses.

McDonnell will first be in Davenport and then will join Jindal in Coralville.

Both men have been campaigning on behalf of the presumptive GOP nominee in several key battleground states.

The Des Moines Register first reported McDonnell and Jindal’s Iowa trip.
