Grassley Pines for Petraeus


Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a longtime GOP leader in the Hawkeye State, tells National Review Online that he is open to hearing Donald Trump’s case for the presidency. But that’s where his enthusiasm ends. “I’ll listen to anybody,” he says, “but I wish that General Petraeus would get interested. I’ve only had one person in Iowa ask me about Donald Trump.”

If Petraeus jumped in, Grassley would escort him to “all 99 counties.” Would he do the same for Trump? “I told you who I’d do that for,” he chuckles.
