U.S. Senate, Iowa
Yes, we conservatives have a volatile relationship with the sometimes-Establishment Senator Chuck Grassley. And yes, his long voting record on tax cuts and entitlement reforms is a mixed bag. But Grassley is consistently right on social issues, and has grown more fiscally conservative in recent years, ever since his rise to Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee. Not to be ignored, he is leading the fight against Obama’s nominee to replace the irreplaceable Justice Scalia. And that’s enough in our book. Besides, presumed Democrat nominee Patty Judge was hand-picked by the DNC and feted by beltway insiders just last week. If there’s anything a conservative loves, its taking on DC elites; so by all means, bring it on Patty.
