Grassley Still Not Ready to Say if He Will Seek Another Senate Term

Chuck Grassley says he is in a thoughtful mood about whether or not he will see re-election. Following his visit with the Mount Pleasant Noon Rotary Club the long-time U.S. Senator from Iowa said it will be known to him and to everyone else by November 1. He has been a senator since  1981. Grassley was first elected to the Iowa state legislature in 1958 and served there until he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1974. He said he is considering his family and what Iowans are telling him.  He said he still feels good and takes care of himself so health is not a consideration in his decision.  He also made it clear his decision is not based on the job itself because he still loves serving the people of Iowa.
