The Iowa Republican: An open letter to Senator Charles Grassley
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
By Representative Kent Sorenson ... as I watch you carry out your duties in the United States Senate as of late, I must confess that not only am I puzzled by some of your recent decisions, but so are thousands of your constituents across the state of Iowa as well. ... despite all of these obstacles, and the fact that I went house-to-house in a Democratic district clearly and plainly defining where I stand on every issue in our party's platform, my campaign defied conventional wisdom and emerged victorious on Election Day. ... Ours is a party that should stand for the strong convictions in its platform, because it is supported by a grassroots that consists of people who share those strong convictions. ... That's why many of us back home here in Iowa are troubled with some of your decisions as of late.
