Bleeding Heartland: Senate 2010: Get to know Bob Krause

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Bob Krause, who is running for U.S. Senate next year against five-term
incumbent Chuck Grassley, was in the news last week with some sensible
comments about health care reform. He encouraged Grassley to demand
higher reimbursement rates for Iowa health care providers in exchange
for dropping his opposition to a public option in the Senate bill ...
Krause is obviously right on both counts, but don't expect Grassley to
listen. He is the leading Republican voice against the public option
and has an ally in Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, a
Democrat whose health care reform plan may be worse than the insurance
industry's. Iowa Democrats have given Grassley a pass for too many
years. I appreciate Krause's commitment to running a real race against
him.
