The Des Moines Register reports:
Republican state Sen. Jim Carlin launched a campaign for the U.S. Senate Monday, jumping into what will be a marquee race in 2022 even as others wait to see whether sitting U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley retires.
“I appreciate (Grassley’s) service, as anybody does,” Carlin told the Des Moines Register. “But I didn’t get in the race to drop out.”
Grassley, 87, is currently serving his seventh term in the U.S. Senate and has not said whether he will run again or step aside. He told reporters earlier this month that a decision is still “several weeks off.”
Read the full article. Carlin wants hearings into the “stolen” election and is presently pushing an anti-transgender “bathroom bill.” Oh, and he wants Iowa’s universities to “catalogue” the political affiliations of their faculty members.
“I appreciate (Grassley’s) service, as anybody does, but I didn’t get in the race to drop out,” Carlin said. https://t.co/tkHdfjqpYf
