Iowa Independent: Salier renews threat of Grassley primary

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

If U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) continues to work with Democrats
on health care reform legislation and energy policy, he will face a
primary in 2010, conservative activist Bill Salier predicted during an
interview on WHO-AM. Speaking with controversial radio host Steve
Deace about a recent letter criticizing Grassley penned by GOP state
Rep. Kent Sorenson of Indianola, Salier said it is not surprising
political observers believed it was the first shot of a coming primary
challenge. "If this were 8 to 10 years ago, then yes, I would have
been surprised by that reaction because Grassley was the dominant
force in Iowa politics, in both parties," he said. "Grassley was the
dominant force and had an enormous amount of loyalty."
