Politically Speaking: Grassley won't be surprised to get GOP challenger

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley has long been a dependable Republican voice
in Washington, but he's now deemed not as valuable as he could be by
some in the Iowa Republican blogosphere. In an eye-opening move, he
didn't get a position in the Iowa delegation to the 2008 national
convention. Some are suggesting that a more conservative GOP candidate
could arise for the 2010 U.S. Senate campaign in which Grassley is
running for re-election. At the conclusion of his town hall meeting in
Onawa in a two-week tour of 33 Iowa counties, Grassley told me he
hasn't heard the names of any potential challengers, but he won't be
surprised to get a GOP opponent. Grassley hasn't had a primary since
his first U.S. senate win in 1980.
