Sen. Chuck Grassley running for re-election
BUTLER COUNTY, Iowa (KCRG) - Iowa’s longest serving U.S. senator, Chuck Grassley, announced on Friday he is running for re-election.
In a press release, Grassley, of New Hartford, said he plans to meet with Iowans in a variety of settings to discuss issues important to Iowa’s communities, schools, businesses, farms and families. His schedule includes stops in Marion, Davenport, Dyersville, Des Moines and Waterloo.
“In a time of crisis and polarization, Iowa needs strong, effective leadership,” Grassley said. “I’m focused on serving the people of Iowa as your senator and fighting for policies that will make Iowa an even better place to raise a family and grow a business.”
Grassley will run against former U.S. representative Democrat Abby Finkenauer. Finkenauer previously served for Iowa’s first congressional district.
Grassley has served in the U.S. Senate since 1981.
