CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Senator Chuck Grassley said he will not be swayed by recent polling that shows most Iowans hope he does not run in 2022.

The Des Moines Register Mediacom Iowa poll released last week showed a majority of Iowans hope Grassley will decide not to run for reelection in 2022.

The Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier reports Grassley hinted he may seek another term and that he will not make the decision to run based upon anything other than taking his work and family into consideration and visiting with a lot of Iowans.

The poll found just 28 percent of Iowa adults surveyed hope the 87-year-old decides to seek an 8th term, while 55 percent said they hope he does not.

Another 17 percent said they were unsure.
