Grassley faces race of his life

After decades of coasting to reelection, Sen. Chuck Grassley is facing his toughest race yet.

Iowa political observers say the 82-year-old Republican senator known for his independent streak could be in danger in a turbulent, no-holds-barred presidential election year.

A Loras College poll released Thursday had the Iowa lawmaker in a statistical dead heat against Patty Judge, his Democratic challenger. Grassley led by only one point, 46-45, against the former lieutenant governor. That nominal advantage was well within the poll’s four-point margin or error.

Public Policy Polling, a left-leaning firm, released a survey earlier last week showing Grassley with a 7-point lead. But even that margin hardly suggests safety for the incumbent.

    He and that stupid ass political farm fest are the only reason we can find them on the map. He’s never getting voted out.

    It may be time for sen. Grassley to consider retirement. It would be nice if he could be replaced by a Republican. Iowa voters may be content to settle for a Democrat.
